Sore nipple! Lock Rss

I have been BF DD since birth - 4 months now.

She has been getting a bit rough lately and last night hurt me.

Today I noticed I was very sore and have discovered a white, hard lump on my nipple! It hurts when she feeds.

Does anyone know what this is? How could I treat it? Do I let her keep feeding?
I would keep feeding her & I suggest you book a dr appt. Perhaps call the parent help line to see if they can suggest anything while u wait for your dr appt?

take care

That sounds nasty, you poor bugga. It could be a little infection if she broke the skin - ouch. I'm sure there is some cream of some-thing the GP can give you to clear that up.

As an alternative, consider nipple shields until its healed. The Avent brands are brilliant, I doubt you bub will even notice the difference. Hopefully you wont need to go that far, but I like to mention it just in case.

Best of luck.
