Hi everyone. New user on the site.
My wife, Annette, is a new breastfeeder. Our baby, Cori, is now 4 days old. Annette has experienced a lot of discomfort, in particularly, dark red spots on the nipples. I have been reading through the posts to try to get her support. We took the two classes at the hospital and both specialists seemed to think that the latch was OK. I'm thinking it might not be.
Are these spots normal? They look like dark red hickies. I'm just trying to help her out. She wants to breastfeed and would like to find out how to treat it and how to avoid it in the future.
It's hard to see her in pain. What can I do?
