any remedy for extremely sore nipples??? :( not able to enjoy breastfeeding because of it. got the Lactation consultant visit twice. tried c hold and v hold. few sessions are really painful.

apply breast milk after every feed

Fareena have u used nipple shield?

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

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

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.

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

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..

Divya hot water ???

btw how old is your baby Fareena?

he is a month and a half old

Hang in there brave mommy. i hated my first few months too. it will pass gradually. you will enjoy the amazing feeling of feeding
