Do you use the stuff you buy at store for nipples. That cream sorta helps. I also wanna say try vasolene Just make sure to clean it all off. I always have used the things you buy that go in nursing bra. They are like little clear cups with wholes. When your not nursing put them in your bra. It allows air flow around your nipples. So they can heal. They worked for me. I breastfed my two year old till she was 15 months old. No bottles at all.
Lansinoh cream,soothies-gel pads that sooth nipples also by lansinoh(they r 11-12$for 2 you can use them 72hours before throwing them out but r great!) Use the cream every time u nurse and let nipples air out when u can
I had lanolin and a gel pad that could be kept in the refrigerator - those helped a ton!
