I delivered a baby boy on 24th Jan. I started getting milk from 26th onwards. I feel the latch of the baby isn't right as I have sore n cracked nipples from day 1. As suggested in the hospital everytime I try giving my nipples along with areola his mouth, he ends up only sucking on the nipples. Any way I can correct this?

Hi Madhu. you need to consult a lactation consultant for this. so any moms on BabyChakra benefited by consulting one. Inboxed you. Check your chat inbox.

hello..i was facing the same dr gave nipcare ointment which i used to apply after every feed and the sore nipples problem went away...also ur getting sore nipples that means the baby is not latching properly..ask ur lactation consultant..she wil guide u with the different different feeding position..

A baby has to latch with mouth wide open lips flanged and a major portion of the areola in the mouth. Yes do reach out for help from a Lactation professional.

Hey dear for sore and cracked nipples you can start using the moms co natural nipple butter it works effectively . Enriched with Shea butter and waxes this works naturally as no Chemicals product.
