    Ask your ob/gyn to prescribe prescription strength nipple cream (called APNO). It was a lifesaver for me. A few applications of it and it will really toughen up your nipples and heal wounds that are present. It requires a prescription though -- nothing over the counter works as well as this.

    I had a terrible time with bleeding with my first. I literally had to pump and dump because there was too much blood. The only thing that worked for me was to air them out as much as possible! I would t wear a bra at all when home and would just deal with the leaking. Because I went through this with my first, I did it with my second for preventative measures, and I didn’t bleed at all with him.

    Use earth mama nipple cream BEFORE pumping or breast feeding and immediately after
