15 Products That Make Breastfeeding Easier
Sore nipples? Painful latch? Leaky breasts? These nursing accessories can help
Issue: It hurts to nurse
They say breastfeeding shouldn't hurt, but a lot of moms in the nursing trenches will tell you it can, at least at first. Make sure your baby has a proper latch by checking that he sucks the areola -- and not just the nipple -- and that both top and bottom lips are turned out. A silicon nipple shield can also give you some relief and create a stronger latch, providing a barrier between you and your babe's mouth.
