Re: 9 days old and in pain!!!
I found Lansinoh® Brand Lanolin Topical Treatment to be one of my best friends in the early days. I used it religiously from the start, I had pain, but never cracking and bleeding. http://www.lansinoh.com/index.php?sr...nts&pos=0,10,1
You may be sore for a while as your body adjusts. It is good that you have had some healing. I can remember that at the beginning I would have pain when they would latch on, but same as yours, it would only last around a minute or less. Over time that went away and it all became pain free. Have you considered have a lc come in to your home and assist you with laying on your side and bf?
