this is the brand of lanolin that I used, but like I said you can also use your own breast milk.

And just a heads up, if you do use the nipple shield, it will also collect some milk for you. It will catch over flow.

What are you doing to help sooth your nipples now? Are you using lanolin after every feeding? You can also get nipple shields that you put in your bra between feedings. What this does is protect your nipples from the chafing of clothing, and lets air circulate to help heal them. Also, if you don't want to use the lanolin, you can use your own breast milk on your cracks and it will help heal them believe it or not....but use in conjunction with the nipple shields, you should start having relief pretty quickly.
