Question: Sore nipples
Answer: First ensure the baby is latching well...if not you can consult a lactational consultant who will assess the latch and correct it... Some remedies are- nipple butter (Palmer and Co is really good), u can put some breast milk over the nipple and let it dry, avoid direct contact of the nipple with bra( can put cotton over the nipple after everytime you feed)... You can even put some coconut oil or borolene over your nipples after every feed but they need to be thoroughly wiped out before feeding... Sore nipples will eventually heal so keep feeding... All the best...
