Swollen due to engorgement? For cracked and bleeding nipple, the fastest way to heal is apply some bm and air it. It's the fastest way to heal it

Not the tip, is at the ring of the nip, feeling pain 😭 Baby latch and pump feels super hurt now.

You need to check your flange size, it needs to fit correctly. Too big or small will hurt and also affect output.

Agree as what J said, bad latch. Did you check on baby latch while u are at the hosp? Recently delivered?

After using avent pumps for 2x and the ring of nip cracked. Yes just delivered last fri.

Did you check if the latch is correct? If it's the ring of the nipple, it could be a bad latch

I would think the cracked is due to pumping. Cox only after 2x of pumping my nip cmi alrd
