We have been breast feeding fine for 12 weeks now and all of a sudden i have a crack just at the top of my nipple whete her top gum goes! Iy is not dry but kind of wet iykwim? So is it best to air it and dry it up or just keep applying lansinoh? Could it be because E is bigger now so has a larger mouth the other one is fine so i think the latch is ok still. I would go to the bf clinic but is on the same time as something else we go to. Any advice appreciated x

A destroyed my nipples in the early days (and for about the first 8 weeks of BF!). Put breastmilk on, leave to dry, then apply a small amount of lansinoh. If possible leave them to air as much as possible.
I would get her latch checked if possible, as it changes as they get bigger. Can you try a different position in the meantime (maybe rugby hold?) so her mouth is in a different position?

Thanks sc hadn't thought of the breast milk thing! i have managed to adjust her latch slightly so it doesn't hurt now sohopefully that will do the trick.
