I too had the same problem during my initial days. Doc suggested me nipcare ..apply it after every feed and wash it before the next feed...it is a pain ...Happy Breastfeeding !!

When bf-ing take care that the baby latches onto more than just the nipple. This will prevent nipple from getting cracked.

The pain is due to incorrect latch or position in all likelihood. Please check with a Lactation specialist. You can have someone come home as well. Please look for references on the baby chakra app and you can book here as well.
