lactation coaching and consulting for better breastfeeding

Provide a moist healing environment. This is different than the soggy surface wetness I mentioned above. Wound care experts have found that wounds heal faster and with less pain when the natural internal moisture of the skin is protected (4). Moist wound healing techniques have also been found to reduce pain because they protect exposed nerve endings (5). There are many products on the market designed to provide moist healing for breastfeeding mothers, like hypoallergenic purified lanolin ointments or hydrogel pads. Apply these products after every feeding session to maintain consistent protection until your skin is healed.
