Cracked Nipples & Oversupply/letdown
I am currently trying to correct an oversupply and overactive letdown. I also have cracked nipples that are more like craters than cracks. I am sure it is from a poor latch due to my little guy gagging and fighting my letdowns during nursing.
Have any other mothers experiences this issue? I am thinking my nipples might heal after I return to work in January, but wanted to see if there was anything I could do now to help them heal.
Thanks in advance for any advice or past experiences.
Note: I don't remember having an oversupply with my first son, but I think I had a heavy let down since we thought my son had colic for 6 months, but it might have been from my letdown making him so gassy.
