After Each Feeding

Once he’s finished nursing, break your baby’s suction before removing him from your breast. Do this by gently inserting your pinky finger into the side of your baby’s mouth until the seal is broken. If you don’t break the suction before pulling your baby from your breast, it will hurt. Try to give your nipples five to 15 minutes to air dry before putting on your bra. If you’re wearing nursing pads, be sure to change them frequently so that the moisture from your breasts won’t cause an infection.
