Ask any mother who has breastfed before and we’ll bet good money that they’ll say two things. The first is they don’t regret doing it because it’s so good for their baby’s health and well-being. Second, there were times when they wanted to run to the nearest store to pick up a bottle because, to say their nipples went through the ringer, is a MAJOR understatement!
It’s not uncommon for nipples to end up cracked, sore and sometimes even bleeding (ugh!). But that doesn’t mean it’s the kind of pain that’s unavoidable. Through trial and error, there are some things women have learned that make breastfeeding a lot easier on the body. And the best thing is the remedies are as cheap as they are effective.
