Get some lanolin to put on your nipples helps with the pain and even cracked nipples. No need to wipe it off it’s safe for baby. Apply as often as needed. If it still hurts past the first month and you aren’t sure about the latch( baby slides off, makes clicking sounds at the breast) and if your nipples look like a flattened lipstick after baby eats baby might have tongue tie a nipple shield and or tongue tie correction could help.
Eventually they become numb lol a good latch and lather on the nipple cream :)
Its totally going to suck ads in the beginning! 2nd time mom 1st time breastfeeding. I love it now my daughter is 5 months. It has its good and bad days. I rub breastmilk on my nipples after feeding so it doesnt get raw. Ive also done multiple attempts when my boobs hurt I take my boob out readjust and try again until I can tolerate it. When your boobs hurt the most give the breast that hurts first until your breast is decompressed.
Lactation consultant saved my life! Best money I ever spent, she spent so much more hands on time than the people in the hospital and really taught me so much. My babe had a bad latch in the beginning and she said you have to kinda train the baby to have a good latch or it will continue to hurt. But don’t give up!! It’s the best I love not making bottles in the middle of the night and cleaning bottles is the worrrst plus it’s free!!
I talked to my laleech lady and used lanolin it helped a lot. Also a poor latch can cause pain
