Why do I have a burning sensation in my nipples when I breastfeed?

Postnatal, Your questions

My name is Sophie-Anne, and my nipples really hurt, even when the baby isn’t breastfeeding. It really burns, and I don’t know what to do because my nipples seem fine except for slight redness. Yet everything was going fine with my three-week-old. Please, I want to continue breastfeeding without pain! Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks, Sophie-Anne


Yes, Sophie-Anne, while it’s better to have yourself examined in person, you can read my article about fungal infections and breastfeeding. In it, you will find an overview of the situation and see if it corresponds with your symptoms. Try the suggestions I outline in the article because they are safe and easy to do. If they don’t help, go in to see a health professional.

All the best,

Marie
