Post subject: Cracked Nipples
Anais has had thrush twice an the second time shes made my nipples crack cos she wasnt latching properly. It effing kills. She refuses bottles 99% of time, an even when she does have one she wants me after so theres no point Rolling Eyes

Will it get better for me to carry on bfing?

Get some http://www.lansinoh.com/products/hpa-lanolin nipple cream. You don't have to wipe it off to feed. It helped me in the beginning and also when George starting catching me with his teeth at around 5 months. Also after a feed cover your nipples in breast milk and allow to dry it has antibacterial properties. I also found mine healed better if I got air to them so used to sleep with my top half naked over night.

George would not have a bottle either. Would take water in a sippy cup from 6 months but not milk.

A good nipple shield might help too as they protect your skin, problem is she still may not accept it. FX something works!

With the cracked nipples not more than a week. When he was catching me with his teeth it was longer as he get re-catching me (literally had holes in my nipples). I did find the lanolin cream the best as you can apply it before a feed and leave it on and it provides some protection. I didn't use a nipple shield but not sure George would have used it.

During my early months of breast feeding I would take a damp, warm rag and place it on my nipples before and after breast feeding. Keep in mind that these tips will help achieve results, but nothing works as well as Motherlove nipple cream for treating your sore and abused nipples. And if all else fails... get in touch with your doctor for more effective solutions to resolve your cracked nipples.
