Whether you are breastfeeding your first baby, or you have nursed several, dealing with nipple pain is no joke! I breastfed my first three babies with no pain at all, but when my fourth baby was born, I experienced cracked, bleeding nipples for the first time.
I went through agony for a full week before my midwife finally took pity on me and recommended a little breastfeeding accessory that changed my life (or at least my breastfeeding life). Why she waited so long, I will never know.
This little piece of silicone worked instantly, and gave my nipples the protection they needed in order to heal.
