When I first started breastfeeding, one of the thing that I wasn't educated with was that you could get hurt when breastfeeding. Yepp, that's right. You could get hurt. Most breastfeeding mothers have experienced cracked nipple once or more. Only another breastfeeding mother who had experienced the same would understand the pain she is going through. This is, believe me a common problem in breastfeeding. How painful? Believe me, if you're not strong enough to go through it you would've probably continue breastfeeding your baby. I had gone through this several times and it involves tears and screaming. But it didn't stop me from breastfeeding. Understanding how it happens and the way to treat it will help you become stronger.
Cracked nipple can be bloody, or not. It can worsen if not taken care of. Discontinuing breastfeeding without knowing the facts might just hurt you. Why not check out some information on Medela's website http://www.medela.com/IW/en/breastfeeding/products/breast-care/breast-nipple-problems.html. Before reading on, do take note that breastfeeding as often as possible will also help to heal, because your baby's saliva can help with healing.
