Does anyone have a recommendation for relief and healing of cracked nipples?

I am already using the breastfeeding moms vaseline, but I was wondering if anyone found any quicker treatments to help.

  • Lanolin works wonders! When mine started to grow they cracked and peeled and were so painful! You can get it at most maternity stores like motherhood maternity for around $10 but it lasts forever, and does a great job!
