“Lasinoh nipple cream is hands down the best nipple cream out there. I tried the organic, earthy stuff this time around, but it did zero to squelch the fiery pain in my nipples. I ended up switching back to my tried and true and my nipples have never been happier. This stuff is legit.” — Lauren Hartmann (via The Little Things We Do)

Available now at Amazon, $8.95

“The nursing product I’m addicted to? Pasties. Except the kind I’m hooked on are these circular, gel-filled discs. You chill them in the fridge, then slap them on your sore, overworked nipples. These cooling thingies provide instant relief and that makes them very sexy.” — Ellen Seidman (via Love That Max)

“It was the closest thing I got to a push present, and it was awesome. The pillow provided a comfortable support for Baby to lay on as he nursed, taking the pressure off my arms. And the black-and-white pattern hid every stain. I also liked the way its pockets offered easy access to the ointments, tissues, smartphones, etc. that nursing so often requires.” — Jessica Allen (via Jessica Allen)
