Like many of my friends and acquaintances, I could probably write an essay about my breastfeeding “journey.” Even though I read a lot about it before having a baby, I think I still underestimated how much it could sometimes just plain HURT. Because I had supply issues right from the start, my baby stayed latched for a long time, which led to a lot of nipple pain — mostly of the stinging and burning variety. Even though I passed these by on my first shopping go-round, I remembered them postpartum and ordered them, and they helped so much! A big thank you to the internet stranger who recommended that I put them in the fridge in between uses. They not only cool and soothe but also provide a barrier between your skin and your bra/shirt/anything that touches your skin that now feels like sandpaper on your poor boobs. A set of 2 is $9.59 at Amazon. Lansinoh Soothies Gel Nursing Pads
