Fareena Rawther

I tried it with the consultant however that was painfull too :( I feel helpless

Neha Agarwal

Maybe u nee do re look at ur latching technique? Totalky understand ur issue :(

Neha Agarwal

As per pre and post natal consultant Seema Kazirangnekar , apply lanolin nipple cream which is safe for babies. clean nipples with soft cotton cloth before applying it. Let us know if it works for u.

Fareena Rawther

yes my gynaecologist has recommended nipcare that I apply after my feedings. yes hoping for the best! thanks Neha :)

Prachi Arora

best remedy is apply breast milk on nipples and other than that feed ur baby as much as possible

Fareena apply coconut oil and pour hot water on ur breast after sometime...
also apply ghee or ur own milk and it would heal soon..

Neha Agarwal
