    Re: bitten nipple--what to do?

    Have you tried using lots of Lansinoh, after her feed and after you take a shower?
    I had huge cracks on both sides, it took 3 months but they finally healed.

    How about changing nursing position...

    Re: plugged nipple

    Waht do you mean by plugged nipple? Do you mean parts of your breast don't 'empty out' after a feed?

    Re: Help! DD has started crying while BFing

  14. Re: Is it OK to breastfeed if nipple is bleeding??
