Sore or Cracked Nipples

Sore or cracked nipples

Sore or cracked nipples sometimes occur in the early days of breastfeeding. While pain and damage usually indicates a problem with latch and/or attachment, the majority of women experience SOME tenderness and sensitivity as their nipples adjust to their new role.

Ensuring that nipples remain in good shape is important for long term successful breastfeeding. Support from a qualified Lactation Consultant can help get to the root of the what is causing pain. Products including nipple shields and nipple balms can also help to soothe, repair and allow for breastfeeding to continue while further support is sought.
