Answer: Try these – • Apply some amount of breast milk, it will help in healing • Try nipcare cream its very effective • Use hot water towel compress • U can use nipple shield while feeding but keep following in mind - * Sterilise the nipple shield and wash your hands thoroughly before you breastfeed. Gently rinsing the nipple shield with boiled, filtered, warm water will soften it and make it easier to put on your nipple. * Make sure to change your nipple shields every month. Regularly look out for any wear and tear. If the nipple shield is torn or cut, don’t use it, throw it away. Even if they still look new, there might be small cracks that can harbour bacteria.

Question: Hi do using nipple shield for feeding reduce milk supply...am having severe pain while feeding without it..
Answer: Hello dear. I can share a remedy which will help you with the pain and please prefer not using nipple shield. The only thing that I did which helped me tremendously was while taking a shower taking luke warm water in a mug adding dettol in it placed ur palm under ur nipple and start pouring that warm water with dettol slowly so that the nipple is soaked in it for few seconds. Do it slowly till 3-4 minutes. Trust me it will help in healing and u will be fine if u do it twice in a day. Just make sure u clean it properly before u feed ur baby.
