In brief: Lanolin cream

Lanolin cream applied 4 x per day often helps.
You can also express breast milk onto your nipples and let it dry, the fat from the breast milk helps to soothe the cracked skin.

In brief: Moisturize/protect

After each feeding rub some of your breastmilk onto your nipples or use a lanolin ointment.
Do not aggressively clean or wipe your nipples after each feeding. You can even get your baby back onto your breast without wiping off the lanolin.
