Nipple pain - ouch!
My almost 5 month old has never given me much latch issues. But over the past week, things have been very painful. My right nipple is now looking pretty bad and is horribly painful.
I am trying to squirt milk on it and let it air dry as much as possible, and also use lasinoh cream. Anything else I should do to heal it?
Should I be nursing thru the pain? I am trying to just get thru it, but it is very painful the whole time. I assume it is just hurting because I am bleeding and I just need to deal with it.
I can't figure out the problem either. From the outside, his latch looks perfect. Could possible teething screw things up? I don't know how to fix this!!
