This could be due to improper latching with the breast. You can sit on a chair, keep a pillow in your lap and make the baby lie down on the pillow. Put baby's head on your elbow and raise your elbow towards your breast. Make sure that lower part of areola and nipple are in baby's mouth. Gradually he will learn to suck. If it hurts and the pain is unbearable please consult your doctor. Also you can apply breastmilk on the cracked nipple. This shall help in healing.

As far as feeding your baby from the sore breast is concerned, express milk through that breast manually , for the milk production to continue. And so everytime you feed from the breast which is fine , do express milk from the sore breast manually, until the cracked nipple heals, otherwise the milk supply will reduce and finally stop from this breast and so baby would also prefer the other breast. Over a period of time u might notice a change in the size of the breasts too because of the same reason.

Hi Roja Cracked nipples may happen due to incorrect feeding method,make sure your posture is correct and see to that the entire aerola is in baby's mouth ,you have to feed baby from cracked side also otherwise the milk will diminish and also if you give from one side you will notice the difference in breasts,also regularly apply cream it will heal soon.
