Breastfeeding help!

Hi ladies! This is my first time on here so not sure how it works, but I’m looking for some advice! I’m breastfeeding my newborn daughter (6 days old) and it is incredibly painful! Cracked and all 😣 I breastfed my son, but he couldn’t nurse until 2 weeks old due to a surgery, so I pumped first. Breastfeeding was not painful with him and we did it for a year. The Lactation Consultant said she is latching correctly. I was using coconut oil to help but picked up lanolin today. Any other advice to help heal and be in less pain? How long does the cracking usually last? Thank you!!

Yes use the lanolin and see if you see a difference I think it could be from not being moist Does she drink a lot from them also do you use breast pads in your bra.

I never had any cracking when a breastfeed my son but that was only for a couple week because when he ended up getting the cold a had to stop as he was stuggling to leach on the nipple and a got the nipple cream for it x
