Lanolin!!!!! I use Medela's but most brands are the same. You can get it anywhere: Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid, Target, most gro0cery s6tores. It runs about $10.00 a tube. Works great and is safe for baby. You don't have to wash off before nursing.

Are they red too? It could be thrush we got it around that time. Check you babies mouth see if you see any white patches and if you can see it you'll need to go to your pedi and can an antifungel oral medication for the baby and yourself. If it's not thrush the lansinoh nipple cream works wonders!!

Have you tried the lansino products? They have a cream that you can use for comfort. Not sure if it is still around, but they even had a "chapstick" for your nipples. Check out your stores breastfeeding section. That stuff is usually right next to the pumps.
