Hello,

The pain is common during breastfeeding that is caused due to sucking. There is no treatment required. Try to find nipple cream to help moisturizing the nipples to reduce pain. Put her frequent to breastfeed despite the pain in order that the nipples get enlarged and don't hurt anymore.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Olgeta Xhufka, General & Family Physician
