Answer: Hi, soreness in breast is common during pregnancy Use moist heat on the breasts for a few minutes, or take a brief hot shower before breastfeeding. This may help the milk begin to flow. Use of heat for extended periods of time over 5 minutes may make swelling worse. Use cold compresses for 10 minutes after feedings to reduce swelling. You can do slight massage after baby finishes breastfeeding. Hope this helps.
Answer: Apply breast milk and nipcare cream. It will heal soon. And till then stop breastfeeding.

Answer: Yes dear,nipple sheild is good ,it also can increase the milk production.it also helps ur baby to latch properly,but remember Using a nipple shield incorrectly may reduce milk supply. Breastfeeding correctly causes the body to make hormones that keep up your milk supply.
