hi kavya ! please ensure baby is able to latch properly. u could apply breastmilk on the cracked nipple.. also u could consult ur doctor for the ointments. if u r not able to feed direectly from this side, u could express milk and feed the baby. or else the milk production would diminish from that side..

Suffered the same situation when my daughter was about a week or two. She was quite weak and couldn't latch properly. She learned to latch when she was 1. 5 months. I used to apply pure coconut oil after every feed. And used to place warm water cotton pads for the relief. And it worked.
