Question: Hey my daughter is 16 days old.. while breastfeeding i m getting cracks in my nipples and it is very hurtful plz can u suggest me something to cure these
Answer: Hi, please check the latching. Sometimes due to poor latching it happens. Also apply breastmilk on it to heal. Even a nipple care ointment can be applied but make sure to wash it properly before feeding the baby. If the cracks are more then use nipple shield while feeding the baby.
