  • You might try a lanolin nipple cream. Once you start lactating, you can rub a drop of colostrum (then milk) on them, to help them heal. You might even talk to a lactation specialist, because they spend a lot of time with women with cracked nipples. There's a cream that is prescription only that is a miracle cure. Good luck!
