I am a breast feeding mother of 14 weeks infant. Nipples crack few times. Wat is the home remedy for it?
What is coming out of my nipples? Only when i squeeze i get a semi-thick white substance. I can see it under the skin before i squeeze it. Breast cancer does run in my family. I am 19 years old. No babies, no piercings, no birth control.
You : You describe leaking a white substance, which is probably breast milk and we call it galactorrhea. Breast milk formation is abnormal if it occurs more than 12 months after pregnancy lactation. You should have this checked to understand the cause. Galactorrhea is caused by an excess of a hormone called prolactin. Excess prolactin can be caused by intense suckling, medications, low thyroid hormone conditions (hypothyroid), excess estrogen (birth control pills), stress, some unusual brain lesions or even non-cancerous pituitary tumors. If the galactorrhea is caused by a specific disease then you need the disease treated. If there is no significant disease and the amount of discharge is minimal then sometimes no treatment is necessary. If the galactorrhea is causing embarrassing wetness or simply bothers you but there is no other serious disorder then medication can stop decrease the prolactin levels and the breast milk. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Use a gentle barrier ointment like lanolin on your nipples after nursing. Make sure to vary nursing positions and alternate starting breast. See a lactation consult if things don't improve in a few days. ...Read more

Clothing: It is called clothing to cover the breast and nipple and believe me, if the baby is hungry enough he/she will take the bottle. Try a weaning program of every other day breast feeding, then every third, etc with bottle supplementation,. if you don't want to be abrupt about discontinuing breast feeding. ...Read more
You should be fine: Most breasts, regardless of size or shape, are able to provide adequate nutrition and breast milk for your baby. If you have had any type of surgery to your breasts, breast feeding may not be possible. Have a lactation consultant assist you with latching so that your baby gets enough milk. ...Read more
