What if My Nipples are Sore?
The best way to prevent and cure sore nipples is to make sure baby opens his mouth wide and pull him onto your
breast so close that his nose and chin are touching your breast.
Your nipples may get sore if baby does not take a big mouthful of breast.
Also: Do not use soap on your nipples.
To take baby off your breast, first break the suction by putting a clean finger between his lips and your breast.
Use a different position each feeding. Alternate between the football hold, lying down and holding the baby next
to your tummy.
If your nipples are sore:
Put some breast milk on the nipples after feeds and allow your breasts to air dry. Try to keep clothing off breasts
for the first few days postpartum,
Be patient. With good positioning and time, your nipples will feel better in a few days. If not, please call us!
My Milk is in and My Breasts are so Full
Feed your baby every 1 1/2 to 2 hours. It is okay to wake your baby up and offer him the breast. Avoid giving
your baby any bottles. The more your baby nurses, the more comfortable you will be.
If your breasts are so full that your baby cannot latch on, take one or two minutes to squeeze some milk out with
your fingers. This will soften the area behind the nipple so your baby can latch on. Do this right before feeding
your baby. For some wom en, this is easier to do in a warm shower.
If your baby cannot latch onto your breast, please call us at 808-388-5985, for help.
The fullness will go away in about 1 week, but you will still have plenty of milk as long as your baby is nursing
every 3 hours or more often.
