It has been a while since I have used this site. It was super helpful to have it available while I was breast feeding my son who is now 2.5 years old. I breast fed him for 17 months. I am currently 27 weeks pregnant and wondering if there is anything I can do now to prevent sore nipples? I had sore nipples for the first month with my son and yes he was latching just fine and all was well. It eventually went away and I applied lanisoh cream(sp)? But it was very painful and my sister had to hold my hand for the first few sucks. I truly don't want this experience again so hoping there is something I can do now to prevent it from happening again. Again the baby latch was just fine and even the lactation consultant thought so too. Any advice? Should I start using the lanisoh cream now?
