How can I minimize the pain of cracked nipples?

Keep Dry

Change your nursing pads frequently so that your nipples stay dry. If your pad sticks to your nipple, moisten it with water before attempting to remove it. Also avoid nursing pads with plastic linings. They prevent the flow of air which is essential to healthy nipples. Stick with 100% cotton pads or pads made of plain paper.
