How to avoid & treat sore or cracked nipples during breastfeeding | Dr. Mamata Panda

Dr. Mamata Panda, Senior Consultant, CARE Hospitals – Bhubaneswar, talks about a common thing mothers would like to know: how to prevent sore nipples. The solution is to teach your baby how to latch properly at the breast. When you take your baby to feed or to latch on the breast, you have to check a few things. The first thing to check is that your baby’s mouth is wide open as if it is eating a hamburger. The areola should be deep in the baby's mouth and the baby should be fully attached to the breast as the child suckles; there should be no pain or discomfort to the mother while the child is feeding.  #CAREHospitals #TransformingHealthcare #breastfeeding #baby #breastmilk #motherhood To know more about Dr. Mamata, visit https://www.carehospitals.com/doctor/-mamata-panda/218 For consultation call - 040 6720 6588 CARE Hospitals Group is a multi-specialty healthcare provider with 17 healthcare facilities serving 8 cities across 6 states in India.
