  • Massaging your nipples in between feedings will help. Also massaging lanolin and/or vitamin E oil into them will help, as well.

  • Use the lanolin all the time. I had that problem, too. Almost made me cry at times. It will get better...and soon! I found that distracting myself with tv or magazines helped. In a couple weeks you won't feel pain anymore.
