does anyone know how i can solve bruised nipples?

When i first started feeding she wouldn't latch on. They had me use aipple shield til she started to latch on again. Now that she is, my nipples are bruised andbleed every once in a while.

  • Massaging your nipples in between feedings will help. Also massaging lanolin and/or vitamin E oil into them will help, as well.

  • Use the lanolin all the time. I had that problem, too. Almost made me cry at times. It will get better...and soon! I found that distracting myself with tv or magazines helped. In a couple weeks you won't feel pain anymore.
