ok...I'm having a time with these sore nipples...it is so bad sometimes i can't help but cry and just want to pull her off and feed her a bottle. i have the lanolin cream but i also just got the medela hydrogel pads and I'm just not sure how well they will work. is there any advice on them and can i use my cream while i wear them?

thank you for your advice. I'm trying to work on her latch but they hurt so bad i was hoping i could get them not to hurt so bad i can't work on it...

I tried breastfeeding but just could not get it and my son did not take to it well...so good for you for breastfeeding. I do know this . My lactation specialist said that your nipples should not hurt...and if they do then baby is not latching on correctly..make sure he has a mouth full and not just your nipple. Thats all the advice i have since I am not exactly an expert in the breasfeeding department.
