I honestly have only had to use lanolin a few times and used what I had as samples. This time my guy is slightly tongue tied and has a recessed jaw so one nipple is not doing well, getting better but needs something. I am almost out of the lansinoh cream and wondering if theres a better option/favorite. Babies r us has a big sale today and I just got paid so gonna go check there later today.

I have no idea if this would help or not, but I use coconut oil for a lot of other things and i always have done on hand. Maybe it could work as nipple cream?
