Solution for crack nipple

Hi sumithra, check your latching position. If there is latching issue then nipples will crack. While feeding, ensure that the baby has entire areola, i.e. the entire brown part in his mouth rather than just the nipple. Also, feeding works on demand and supply basis. The more you feed, the more you will produce as the body gets the signal that more milk is required. Feed every two hours, otherwise express and store, and feed the expressed breastmilk to the baby. Also, if at all you need to give formula, do not give with bottle otherwise baby will not feed directly and would prefer bottle-feeding only as it's easier in comparison to breastfeeding. Give either expressed breastmilk or formula if required by bowl and spoon. If the nipples are too much cracked and painful, you can apply some of your milk on them, and leave. It helps a lot. Otherwise a generous Coating of ghee would help too. If nothing helps, ask your gyn to prescribe some ointment for you
