I though i have cracked nipples, but i checked with my ob its normal. My LO born one month before. I want to really breastfeed him for atleast for more than 1 year. But i am facing some difficulties wen i keep him on my breast to feed he is capturing the nipples even though if i tried to pull off or try to give him mouthful of the areola area he is slipping off to the nipple. He is biting on both my breasts, i cant explain tat dreadful and terrific pain, which makes my mom in law to ask me to stop feeding, lets start off with formula, cos he is crying and in the same time i am with full of tears coz of terrific pain.
I have enough milk for him as of now. But not able to breastfeed him happily with full of tears and pain only i am feeding, i am worried whether my nipples will be wounded which will make me to not feed him anymore. Please help i am very curious to feed him this precious milk.suggest some advice.
Can i breast pump the milk and feed him so that i can avoid pain
or can i use nipple shield to give him milk.
