Tips to Make Sex More Comfortable During Breastfeeding

Dear Fitness Expert,
I breastfeed my 14-month-old baby. Ever since my baby born by c-section, I have pain during sex. I went to doctor and she said I have infection. She froze it and gave me some ointment. I am a little better.

I have read that during the time you breastfeed the vagina isn't so well lubricated. Can you suggest ways of compensating that won't be harmful to the baby?
