You’ve celebrated the miraculous arrival of your little one, finally sorted out the latching and let down of breastfeeding, when the burning and deep shooting breast pain settles in. Sore breasts, painful nipples and even cracked nipples follows, threatening to derail your efforts.
Description, Symptoms & Causes
Sore breasts and painful nipples are usually caused by either:
- improper nursing positions and nursing schedules, or incorrect sucking by the baby.
- infection, most commonly with the fungus, Candida albicans.
To successfully treat sore breasts and painful nipples in mom and baby, you need to ensure that you are targeting all areas of overgrowth and put measures in place to prevent re-infection.
It is also important to treat mom and baby at the same time or the infection will simply be passed from one to the other.
