When I first started to breastfeeding my daughter no one told me about the painful sides of breastfeeding or how to help relief the pain and to heal a cracked nipples..

So I thought we could share some tips how to heal cracked nipples and to prevent it from happening.

* Make sure bub is in the correct feeding position & attached properly.
* express milk from around the areola to help soften it.
* Use a nipple shield ( only until nipple starts to feel a little better ask lactation consultant first about using one. )
* If you nipple if to painful express with your hand on the side its sore to keep milk supply up.
* Keep you nipples clean
* allow your nipples to air.
