How long did it take for your nipple cracks to heal?

I feel like I am very slowly making progress but they still look like pretty big cracks.  How long until they don't hurt anymore?

  • Mine were awful. My LC told me to use nipple shields for 2 to 3 days. After that all was good. If you go that route you need to pump after you nurse.

    I think I wore my breast shields for like 1-2 weeks just to make sure they didn't get cracked again.  Ha.
