Your nipples will hurt and be super sore but it doesn't be painful. If it's painful check her latch.
I've been using the gel pads feels great after they come out the fridge. Lol. But she's getting better at latching which is good
Rub your breastmilk on your nipples and let them air dry after each feeding.
These got me through the first two weeks! It gets better mama I promise!
Nipple shields maybe. But you can try the soothing gel pads. They are soooo amazing!
I know in the hospital some people use nipple shields to get babies to latch properly and slowly wean them off of the shields
Nipple cream ALL THE TIME! Even during feedings.
@jolynnwilliams the more you work on a good latch, the less painful it will be. Being sore in the first couple of days normal. It won't last forever. I use coconut oil.
@jolynnwilliams its a couple of weeks. Try some boobease and maybe massage them. It hurts but it gets better. I did this 3 times and all 3 times it hurt but got better. Mind over matter.
@jolynnwilliams have them send you a lactation consultant. She could be latched wrong. Also it gets better. ❤
@beebaby, I just give up. It's too painful or is it normal?
@raisingabi, I got both those. But they're not really helping. 😔
I know they make an ointment over in baby sections by the breast pads. Also these little gel packs that go over your boobs.
