thank you for the input.
i don't know about the nipple healing properties of coconut oil, but i'm always surprised when it is recommended as a good quality oil for food, as here it's considered the worst plant based oil! and i've certainly not seen it in use in central africa, i guess it's more widely used perhaps in south east asia or the carribean?
is there an ibclc article we can read up? i'm always interested in learning more, even when i disagree!
OL: my personal recommendation is always mothers milk only, and good latch and positioning.
