Nipple Confusion ?

Recently gave birth and started breastfeeding. Day 4 i bought nipple guards because baby was chewing too hard on my already blistering raw nipples. Now day 7 i tried to stop using it, but she doesn't seem to accept my nipples without the guard anymore. Anyone know what can i do?

Can continue trying and place the nipple near baby mouth so baby can try to latch on , can apply nipple cream and put cold cabbage after feeding to soothe the pain

Super Mum

Apply the nipple cream to your nipples to protect them then keep trying. Try when she’s pretty hungry (mouthing+sucking on hands) but before she’s screaming.

Keep offering to your Lo.

Don't give up!! Keep trying!!

Keep on trying. Once in a while u can use the nipple guard. If not please consult LC .

Please consult a LC. It’s the best way to solve this problem. I got Sister Kang from mt A for home visit. She will also teach you the correct way to latch.

Keep trying

You can just continue with guard. But try for sometime without guard.
