Story goes, that a girl can glean a lot of great advice from her fellow mamas! It's so great hearing what other mom's discover through trial and error, and even better is it that we ENJOY sharing our knowledge!
I learned tonight that a little lanolin goes a long way...great for those sore nipples, but also works wonders on sore baby butts! Who knew?! Speaking of sore nipples (I do a little lactation consulting, also), a "miracle cream" (you'll thank me later) that you MUST try is, "All Purpose Nipple Ointment". Oh my, how it worked wonders on my traumatized nipples! You know, when you are at that point when the baby starts crying 'cuz she's hungry, you start crying right along with her 'cuz you know you're in for some major pain?! Yup, give it a shot (it is a prescription, so you'll need to find a knowledgeable provider). Like I said, you'll thank me later! :) Oh, and in case you're wondering, just 'cuz it's "all purpose", don't use it on your chapped lips...not that I'd know first hand...or anything.
