Cracked nipples and pain is the result of an incorrect latch. You need to seek the assistance of a Lactation counselor for the same. Please look thru the directory on Babychakra for a counselor in your area. Additionally for getting baby to latch on other side please do keep trying. Try and latch baby on when babybisn half full or when baby is sleepy or has just woken up. Slowly the baby will get used to feeding on both sides again.
