Breast milk is definitely the most natural

Tea bags! I used mothers milk tea bags. Let them sit in the warm water just enough to get wet and warm up; place them right on the nipples! It is amazing!!!! And I would reuse the same tea bags a couple times as they are expensive. They start feeling better pretty quickly!
