My niece is nursing her first baby and I'm trying to give her some good advice (I breastfed both mine but that was over 20 years ago!).

I remember having sore and cracked nipples but not having anything to put on them that was safe for the baby. I read about something somewhere, sometime in the past, but I can't remember a thing about what it was.

Anyone have any ideas?

Lansinoh's nipple cream is straight medical grade lanolin, a natural wax from sheep's wool.

Coconut oil is sometimes recommended, but since it is an actual fat, it is more staining than lanolin.

Neither present a danger to a nursing baby.
