I used Dr. Jack Newman's recipe for the homemade version of All Purpose Nipple Ointment, which one of the labor and delivery nurses gave to me after she saw all the blisters.
Take equal parts Polysporin, Lotrimin, and Cortisone.
Mix in small batches and use after anywhere from 4 to all feedings in a day, remix every 3 to 4 days.
The Polysporin has to be brand name but the others can be generic.
It was a lifesaver and no need to find a compounding pharmacist to mix it.
Thanks to Emily for this Frugal Baby Tip!
