  • You can try putting the lanolin in the fridge and putting it on cold. Also, I used to wear nursing pads under a padded bra, not because I wanted my boobs to look bigger, because it was cushioning and it hurt less when anything rubbed on my boobs. Some people also use heat for sore boobies. Other than that, there's not much you can do!

  • Cabbage leaves are good. Stick some inside your bra.

  • if you have anything thats not totally flammable, like some extra stockings or if there are towels anywhere, pop them in the microwave for a second to get them warm and put them in your bra. That's what i did at home when i was nursing my first then i took little washcloths to work & did the same! Good luck! Nipple pain sucks!
