Breastfeeding support


How’s everyone’s breastfeeding going?

I’m sore, I think one of my nipples may be cracked but the more I feed baby Ryder it bothers me less than the previous feeding. He definitely favors one side more already and maybe nurses for 30/45 minutes at a time on one breast or both.

I wouldn’t say the actual act of breastfeeding is painful, but the sucking is definitely something I need to build up a tolerance for. I had a Lactation consultant tell me his latch is pretty good, he needs to curl his lips out a little more but other than that, he’s doing good.

How can I get him to practice sucking properly? Let him suck my finger or... I don’t want this to be unenjoyable so any advice is great lol
