hi, am a mom of 15 daya old baby girl.

am having issue with feeding. my nipples are cracked and cut. i could not feed my baby. itz paining alot. suggest me some remedy to get rid of thus.

hey nithi they say apply ur own breastmilk it helps. tagging Harneet Khurana who has written on this topic. Dr. Payal M Sheeba Vijesh Sumira Bhatia pls help!!!

hi the latch is not correct and hence,  u r facing this problem . pls read my post abt this for better understaninghttp://app.babychakra.com/feedpost/5602

yes apply breastmilk and let it dry. it really does help.  you can apply ghee or nipcare.  just make sure you clean it well before feeding the baby.  this is happening because baby isn't latching on properly Your Guide To Latching And Breastfeeding Positions! this might help along with harneet's post

you might be feeling the pain for the first few seconds when baby latches? correct the position , use the remedies suggested and continue to feed. if u stop then u might have engorged breasts which will add to ur pain. (if u absolutely can't feed, then dont skip too many feeds and also try express the milk.) tc
