I continually suffer from cracked nipples, which is very painful. What can I do?
Use a cream that softens and restores the skin tissue, and does not need to be removed before breastfeeding. Multi-Mam Protect reinforces and conditions the skin tissue. Based on natural ingredients, it is tasteless and harmless when swallowed, so can give optimal protection during feeding and throughout the day. You can also try Multi-Mam Compresses for sore nipples.
What are the causes of nipple problems?
Most nipple injuries result from a poor latch; it is important that the most sensitive part of the nipple tissue is pulled deeply into your baby’s mouth. Using products that diminish the skin’s natural protection, such as soaps and shampoos, can also cause cracked nipples. Finally, yeast infections, eczema, or a tendency for dry skin are potential causes of nipple problems.
