Question: My baby is 13 days old...my nipple got cracked ..when i go to feed its paining heavily ...plz tel me the solution
Answer: hi dear!
-Breastfeed from the uninjured (or less injured) side first. Baby will tend to latch more gently on the second side offered.
-The initial latch-on tends to hurt the worst – application of ice right before latching can help to numb the area.
-Experiment with different breastfeeding positions to determine which is most comfortable.
-If breastfeeding is too painful, it is very important to express milk from the injured side to reduce the risk of mastitis and to maintain supply. If pumping is too painful, try hand expression.
after you are done with the breastfeeding , try to soak your nipple in a salt water for not more than a minute. take half teaspoon of salt in one cup of warm water and then pat it with a dry towel. and then rinse it with normal water is that the salt wont go into your baby's mouth while breastfeeding.
and also after this salt water rinse try to put a little milk over the nipple . or vaseline can also work. but before your baby latches for the next feed wash it with water.
take care dear!
i hope this information is helpful to you!
