I used Lansinoh for the first few days and then the old tried-and-true express a few drops of milk and rub that into your nipples then air dry tactic. It does help a lot and I NEVER had cracked nipples. I also never had mastitis.
Getting a proper latch is the best way to make sure that you won't wind up in tons of pain for the long term. Get as much of your aureola as you can get into her mouth (sometimes it helps to grab the area right beyond the colored part and kinda gently squeeze to make it "smaller" for baby's mouth). Also, right before you start nursing, take a warm wet washcloth and put that on the breast you'll be starting with for about 5 minutes. That will help with let-down and she won't have to work AS hard to start out with.
