Cracked or bleeding nipples are usually the result of an improper latch,the baby may not be getting enough of the areola in her mouth
Also, whenever you pull your baby off the breast, insert your pinky into the corner of her mouth first to break the seal.
Apply a hot compress on your breast just before feeding to help milk let down you may as well have a warm drink like a glass of water ,milk or green tea
Applying breast milk onto cracked nipples may help them heal by offering antibacterial protection
Wipe your breast with plain water post feeding as it may cause yeast build up
Wipe it with water and apply green tea bags .
You can consult your pediatrician to recommend creams for soothing sore nipples, and you can wipe it away just before a feeding
you can continue to breastfeed your baby when you have cracked or bleeding nipples, though it can be very painful.

Question: Message by Raashi Gaur:
Hello dear ladies...as my little one is teething he bites the nipples badly...infact one of the nipples seems to have a cut...what do I do as he gets pacified only by suckling?
Answer: Hello dear
Nipple shield is good if u are having cracked or sore nipples and u are not able to breastfeed ur baby. It is a short term plan but dont make it a habit otherwise it can interfere with ur baby's breastfeeds, reducing the amount of milk she can take from your breast.
