Lansinoh is wonderful for nipple soreness. There are definitely some discomforts when you start out, but as long as she is putting out plenty of wet and poopy diapers, don't worry about your supply.

Indeed, the hospital gave me lansinoh and it was a lifesaver. Having the doula teach us the difference between "fluttersucking" and actual swallowing was quite useful. An early preference for the left breast seems to have led the right to under-produce. Working on that with pumping and fenugreek supplements.

I've also now tried the cabbage leaves in the bra thing for soothing and it seems to work too!

The cabbage leaves do help with engorgement, but they reduce your supply, too, so if you're having trouble you might want to hold off on that. It sounds like everything is going pretty well. She's a gorgeous baby.
