    I know too that in the beginning, when you are pumping a "dry" breast, it can hurt. So I wonder if having some APNO would help with that since it has the whatever it has in it that helps with pain.

    That's a good idea. I've got lanolin, I can use that and if it starts hurting I'll get some APNO.

    You can make some at home too...it isn't as good as Dr Newman's I am sure, but I could never get a script so the homemade one was all I ever used and it worked really well. It is equal parts steroid cream (cortaid or something like it), antibiotic ointment, and and antifungal cream (clotrimazole I think it is) and that works.

    That sounds pretty straightforward. I'll look up the recipe just in case I need it. Thanks!
