I have a 1 week old and this is the first time breastfeeding. My nipples feel like someone has taken a cheese grater to them. Is there anything I can do to make them heal faster and tuffen up. The nurses told me to express milk, spread it around the nipple and then let it dry. This is NOT working for me. I just don't think I can keep feeding the baby breast milk because it's painful. Please someone help me! If you're goingto lecture then please don't reply.
