Get some Lansinoh Breastfeeding Cream. Rub it on after every feeding and before you bathe. Do not wash your nipples with soap and let the milk air dry on them first before you even put the cream on. Your baby isn't biting are they? Also, have you had a lactation consultant check that your baby is latching properly? An improper latch can cause lots of pain.
