I am new to the board so sorry if this has been asked a million times. I have a crack and it is so painful to nurse. I really really don't want to give up but am wondering if the only way for it to heal is to stop nursing. From reading the other posts it seems like a lot of you cracked and bleed. When did it heal? and was there anything in particular you did to heal it?
side note, my supply is on the low side so we have to supplement as well. I pump on ton on the side that doesn't hurt and always nurse on the sore side (the baby hurts far less than the pump and drains me much quicker).
Thanks for any advice!
