Has anyone out there used coconut oil instead of lanolin for sore/cracked nipples?

I've read that coconut oil has many healing benefits such as being antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral, not only that but that it is commonly added to baby formulas to help with proper weight gain and fat absorption. I was just wondering if anyone else has used this and if they had any problems with their babies when they did. Thank you very much for any info or feedback you have on this subject. I'm a very big fan of coconut oil for skin care and plan on using it instead of baby oil, and it has kept my skin stretch mark free so far as well as helped cure my eczema and I'd like to stick with it but I want to know that it's safe for my little one!
