In brief: Lanolin

If the question relates to how to make the breasts and nipples more comfortable when breastfeeding, one of the answers is to apply lanolin, USP on the breasts before nursing or when they feel dry.
And you don't have to wipe it off before the baby nurses, so you won't irritate them.
