    Sore Nipples

    Hi guys!
    Any suggestions on how to treat sore nipples? I am thinking of getting those gel pads to place in the nursing bra. Any suggestions on a good brand? One that's effective and safe for baby?
    Thank you!

    Hi there!
    When I was breast feeding I used a cream called mamma mio, it worked perfectly for me. Also breast pads and wipes to clean the nipples of the brand Chicco.
    You can find the cream at the Linea Negra stores and the other things at Chicco stores.
    Hope this helps :)

    I used Mustela's cream and found it really effective. Didn't use anything special to clean... was told in the hospital that a bath is enough (though not sure if one is supposed to specifically clean nipples if using a cream...I assumed the cream was safe).

    Before nursing, squeeze out & dab some breastmilk onto nipple AND then apply nipple gel(Lansinoh/Medela- available in Eugene Centre (I got my Pigeon's from S'pore) Repeat these steps after nursing Hope this helps & get well soon:)
