Okay, I knew my LO wasn't latching on correctly, but it was such a fight to get her on that I left it alone and now my nipples are covered in blisters!!!! I have expressed some milk onto the nipple, covered myself in Lanolin, tried tea bags on the nipple, and I am topless right now because it still burns like crazy even though she finished about 40 minutes ago. When she nurses it feels like some is holding a lighter to my nipple.
Does anyone have any more suggestions?
I am looking for something that will just help me get through her next feed without jumping out of my skin. Also, how long will it take for this to heal, if I make sure she is latched correctly from now on?
