You should get to the root of the problem. If it's thrush see a doc, if it's latch see a LLL Leader ect..... I usually use Earth Mama Angel Baby nipple butter and some extra tlc. Some oragel applied before nursing helps too. hth

purelan didnt work for me. I used that gerber breast stick--kinda like a chapstick. it was great! I have also heard that putting some breastmilk on your nipples and letting them air dry will help.

purelan (lanolin) and air...keeping them uncovered for a little while helps mine.
