Aside from cutting claws of nursing pups, is there anything else I can do to make mums undercarriage more comfortable ?
Can I use plasters or surgical tape to cover sore areas or is this far too risky if a pup were to swallow it (which seems a likely enough risk)

Keep puppies' nails filed, trimming makes sharp little edges. If her skin is raw, you may want to gently rinse her undercarriage (love that!) and I have been know to use coconut oil on raw spots. Safe for puppies to ingest, soothing and antimicrobial.
Watch closely for hot, hard spots, too. My DD laughs at me for 'feeling up' my lactating girls daily.

Organic Boob Ease works great
Hard to get on short notice, but I like to use an organic product made by bamboobies called boob ease - lanolin free safe to use without washing off. It is very soothing and creates a barrier to prevent further irritation.
