Cracked/bleeding Nipples. Help!!

Hi ladies, I've never been successful at breastfeeding, so have always bottle fed my children. This time around though, I'm bound and determined to make it work. (so far we've gone a month of exclusively breastfeeding! yay!!). My daughter latches on beautifully and is a fantastic nurser, which has really helped me to stick with it. :) The only problem is, my nipples are peeling and bleeding from nursing, and boy do they HURT! I can't use lanolin-based products that have been suggested to me by my doctor for soreness; is there something...

What Is Considered "Healthy Eating" While Breastfeeding?

Don't worry too much, I have lost 47 of those pounds so far!! I want to go beyond losing my pre-pregnancy weight; I want to look and feel good!!! Anyway, I was wondering if anyone...
