I was due last week and will be induced later this week if no progress. I noticed throughout my pregnancy that my nipples developed yellowish scab-like, cracked, crusts on them. My doctor suggested it may be dried colustrum, but I have tried to squeeze the breasts and nothing has come out of them. He suggested using lanolin which I have been doing. In the meantime, I am concerned that there is an infection or that something is wrong. Any suggestions/help ? I am extremely anxious and nervous about beginning the breastfeeding process and greatly appreciate any help/assistance.
Thanks so much!
