Dry Itchy Nipples PRETTYinINK Due January 4 (boy); 49 kids; Virginia 391 posts

I've noticed that lately my nipples have been driving me completely insane! They have become dry and irritated and I have no idea what to do about it. I've tried lotion but that doesn't last very long. Is this something that I have to suck up, or is there something I can do about it?

lanolin!!! it's a lifesavor!!! and once you have the baby it's still safe to use cuz you can just wipe it off and not worry about the residue hurting your baby, thats what my doc recommended and it's great!

well lanolin is great, but if youre pregnant then i would save some money and use vaseline for now because lanolin can be pricey. if youre breastfeeding use lanolin all the time!!! because you cant use vaseline because the babys not supposed to eat it, but lanolin is safe.

For me, it lasts all day long. The vaseline has time to absorb into my skin and give it the moisture it needs. I apply it at my morning shower and evening shower and mine are much better. I was actually having cracking skin :shock: etc.
