I have a 17 day old baby boy. BF has been rough..but we're working at it daily. My nipples have been very sore. The left is finally ok and the right is still a problem. There is a crack that is simply not healing. I put APNO after every single feeding and have started each feeding with the left side. I walk around braless quite a bit. About 3 days ago, I fed him on the left side only and pumped the right for 24 hrs. It got a bit better, but once I put him back on it, it kind of opened up again.
Latching is so painful and it's a bit better through the feed, but it's not pain free. I dread every single feeding time and it's making me feel a bit depressed. What do I do?
