  • the baby will have the pasty tongue...you have to use a clean warm/wet wash cloth to wipe it off. Nipples hurt or breast hurt?
    Nipples hurt= not latching on properly ( see lactation specialist at hospital) or read about breastfeeding on internet/ in books
    Breast hurt... milk needs to be squeezed out. massage them in downward motions while in warm/hot shower to get milk out. Not breast feeding anymore? You may still be producing milk. maybe ask your dr.
