cracked nipples with breastfeeding

Have been breastfeeding ofr about 6 weeks and until recentlyt had sore cracked nipples. Health Visitor helped me alter the position and attachment. He had grown so much that I now have to feed him in rugby ball position for comfort and his good attachment. However, all going well but frightened will get sore again. Believe there is a gel type stuff I can put on nipples. HV said to allow milk to leak onto nipple and dry to air and that would help.
Any other suggestions/ideas to share.
Thanks
