Tips and advice on breastfeeding problems

That it hurts when the baby sucks is a biological warning signal and probably a sign that the breastfeeding technique should be corrected. The baby may not be properly placed at the breast.

Wounds and cracks on the nipples

Some tips:

  • Do not pull the nipple out of the baby’s mouth. A finger between mouth and wart is gentler to get the baby to let go.
  • Air dry the nipples after breastfeeding.
  • Use dry inserts in the bra, but not plastic.
  • Be careful of hand hygiene to avoid infections.
  • Lubricate the breasts with breast milk.

If the nipples have already become sore:

  • Have your child eat short, frequent meals.
  • Air dry extra long.
  • If it is really cumbersome, try giving the breast milk with a spoon until the nipple is healed.
