Hey ladies ... I am in desprate need of help! I have open wounds on both my nipples from bad latch issues early on that I cannot get to heal. They seem to be getting worse in fact. I've tried salt water soaks, lanolin, Jack Newman's Cream, nothing, air drying, leaving them out, putting clean pads on everytime ... it's been almost 2 weeks now and they just will not heal. Every time she latches to the Left it bleeds in fact and that's with using a nipple shield. Today I decided to try coconut oil but if anyone has any, ANY suggestions ... I want to breastfeed but this is getting unbearable. I tried pumping and bottle feeding, but the idea of pumping for every feeding and then bottle feeding is stressing me out. I'm home alone most of the day so that would be all I did (She eats every 2 hrs during the day)
Any advise is welcome!
