I still have this and im nearly 20weeks. I try to use vaseline most days on my nipples, not just for that, but so they are ready the baby being here. the vaseline works for me.

I've had that since 16 weeks and I am 22 weeks. I put lotion on but it only helps for a little while!

Yes its common.  I had this with #3.  Get some lanolin.  Its works better than lotion  you can buy it at walmart or any pharmacy in the baby isle.  Good luck.
