My daughter is about three weeks old and we have been breasfeeding with minor supplements of pumped milk. Due to improper latch, my nipples are severly cracked and painful. I have been trying to just power forward and work through the pain, but am close to giving up and just pumping the milk. I have ample supply, so at least she can still have breast milk, but in many ways I feel like a failure and disconnected from my daughter because I can't figure this out. I had a lactation consultant come to the my home yesterday to see if she could help, but in many ways she only frusturated me more. I'm looking for some advice for what to do.
