My 6 week old just tore my nipple where the nipple and areola meet, I have stopped feeding her on it and started pumping instead. The tear is now spreading around more of the nipple. I dont want my milk production to stop, and I am afraid if I dont pump then it will stop completely. I am still feeding my daughter on the other side. I just dont know what to do! I am putting the Lansinoh on it, but it doesnt seem to be helping. Any suggestions?

I tried that too and madela but nothing worked fr me except the nipple stick by gerber. It soothed my cracked/torned nipples rit away.
