Thanks for the suggestions. I don't know why I didn't think to try CJ's! We love that stuff around here. I'm already planning to give her some of that so maybe we'll call that good enough for the nipple cream. I'm taking notes on all of these suggestions for my next baby!

Re: Favorite nipple creams?

I was bleeding at first despite having a good latch according to the lactation consultant, so I was prescribed Newman's. Once that healed up I started making my own similar to the Earth Mama Angel Baby kind. I just heated the ingredients in a small mason jar set in a shallow pot of water and then let harden while it cooled. It's great, I use it on my hands and ankles too.

Another vote for coconut oil or medela lanolin.

Re: Favorite nipple creams?

I have used Medela lanolin when I breastfeeding all my kiddos when I needed cream. My hubby knew which one to buy already when I would ask him go buy me one.

For those who said CJ's, did you just use the regular CJ's butter or the "Best Boobie Butter?"

I like the Medela and Motherlove diaper rash and thrush ointment. It is also my favorite diaper cream as well!

Re: Favorite nipple creams?

I tried Earth Mama's nipple cream, which smells a little odd (my baby didn't seem to mind), but positively melts on your skin. But when my nipples started bleeding briefly, I felt Lansinoh's lanolin helped them heal faster. I didn't feel it was too thick, but I delivered in the summer, and I have noticed that the lanolin is definitely harder in colder months.

Re: Favorite nipple creams?

I started off using the Medela lanolin, but a lactation nurse recommended that I get something stronger. The prescription all purpose nipple ointment was wonderful for me! Now I can't imagine using anything else.

I used lanolin and all purpose nipple cream the first three weeks. After that I only used lanolin when I pumped to lubricate against the shields.
