At my wits end

I just do not know what to do about these deep cracks in my nipple. They heal a little and then just get bad all over again. It hurts so badly to nurse or pump.

There is no thrush or bad latch. I do not think she is tongue tied but I am going to have it checked out.

I do not even enjoy nursing right now because the pain is so terrible. Been dealing with this for weeks now.

Re: At my wits end

I'm sorry mama!! I really liked Mothers love nipple cream when mine get super sore - Lanisnoh really hurts and does not seem to help much... I hope it gets better! Below is a link to the cream that I love

Re: At my wits end

I am having the same problem. My LC told me to keep my nipples moist. When they dry, they lose suppleness and it worsens the cracking. What I've started doing is putting the MotherLove cream on, then the Lansinoh gel soothies over that. In addition, she has me taking vitamin B complex (forgot to ask her the dosage though, so I took only one pill today. I go in tomorrow, and I'll find out dosage then). I've also been taking 600mg of ibuprofin every 6 hours. It sucks. I truly feel your pain. I haven't nursed on my left side, recently, only pumping when absolutely necessary. I can still nurse on my right side, but I've been putting a nipple shield on it that has been greased w/olive oil. I tried the olive oil the last time I pumped, and that seemed to help w/the friction/tearing/pain.

Good luck!!
