Answer: Hi dear I think the baby is latching is not correct hence you are feeling that pain and there is redness on your nipples I would suggest you to please make the baby latch correctly because while they lack the entire areola should be sucked and not only the nipple 1 se start sucking only on the nipples it becomes too painful and hard to feed the baby you can cold compress the nipples you can also apply your own breast milk and nipcare cream both of them as if there is no problem in applying them and please try to see a lactation consultant to correct the baby's latch.. Hope this helps!

Question: My nipples are bleeding when i feed my baby what to do i have applied desi ghee
Answer: Hi.. I had faced the same problem. This is due to cracked nipples. Try using nipcare cream. Make sure you wash it before feeding the baby. Also ensure that the baby latches properly during feeding. Cracked nipples may be cz the baby sucks only the nipple. Pls check different feeding positions and choose the one comfortable for both of you. Don't worry it does get better with time..
