help with cracked nipple Rss

Hi All

It's been a while since I've posted and in that time Jayden has gotten his first tooth (about 2 weeks ago) YAY!!! very cute. However I am after some advice on how to heal a cracked nipple. I don't think it has any relation to Jayden getting his tooth unless he's sucking differently. Anyway he is just 8 months old and I want to continue feeding him till 12 months however it is just to darn painful. Only one nipple is cracked but I have to give him both sides at a feed as one side is not enough for him. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone.

Hi,

Have you ever tried Lansinoh? I find it works really well. It is sort of a cream that you can put on that doesn't harm the baby. I think it's lanolin based. You can get it at the chemist.....in a purple and white tube (at least that's what mine looks like).
Try it.....I find it clears up a sore nipple with one or two applications....and it certainly helps the cracked ones to fix up quicker too.

Hope I've helped,

Georgina
