From the start dd and I have had a rough time. We had a latch issue, infections, and soreness for the first 4mo. DD is now 6 mo and just started on cereal and some veggies. Within days of starting her on foods my nipples were very sore. So I stopped feeding her foods and my nipples started to feel better. A week or so later I started her back on the foods and developed the same problem. This time I used an antibiotic ointment (suggested by a LC) on my nipples and that helped, but as soon as I stopped using the ointment the sorness came back. Could foods cause a bacterial infection on my nipples? Is there any connection between the sorness and the food?
