The Good Start Guide to Breastfeeding
When a new mother is physically uncomfortable or in pain while nursing, the problem is usually that the baby or mother is not in a good position, or that the baby is not correctly latched on to the breast. Make sure your baby is very close to your nipple when nursing and has the nipple and a good part of the areola (the “circle” around your nipple) in her mouth when she nurses. Pillows to prop up your baby can be helpful. If you continue to experience sore or irritated nipples try using cloth nursing pads inside your bra instead of disposables.
