Has anyone any remedies for really sore breasts? In particular, my nipples are so tender, that even brushing my arm off them is excruciating :o( I was lying in bed last night reading a book and whatever way I moved, I actually yelped with the pain! I know I can't take Evening Primrose Oil anymore ... any other remedies out there?

Not tried and tested, but I think lansinoh which you use when bf-ing for sore/cracked nipples might be helpful, it is a yellowy creme and you only need to apply a tiny bit, perhaps it would de-sensitise them a bit.

Hi Hopingforsoon I had really sore breast until 16 weeks exactly and then all the tenderness went away, hopefully that'll happen to you too... I was also told Lansinoh was good to use, but I found wearing a bra to bed with a breast pad in it was also a great help because nothing could knock off me and I wasn't rubbing against the duvet or anything..... Hope you get some relief soon..
