My baby girl is 8 days old. Ive been struggling with sore nipples. It was agony the last 4 or 5 days. Ive tried to make sure latch on was right, this didnt happen with my firstborn who is now 5 and i breastfed till he was 2 without probs beside engorgement.
They scabbed and got red and irritated now they seem to be healing. (I hope) The left side seems more tender then the right and we struggle with latch more on the left usually. Ive tried positioning different ways and stopped greasing my entire nipple and areola with lanolin after reading it could be causing her mouth to slip down. Maybe that was it?
Anyone have suggestions for a baffled second timer?
