Nipple pain is common in breastfeeding. Women should be counseled to:

  1. a. Get used to it; it will eventually go away.
  2. b. Use antibiotic creams to prevent mastitis.
  3. c. See a lactation consultant for proper positioning of the infant at the breast.
  4. d. Use a pump instead of having the infant at the breast until the pain goes away.

Therefore, it is more frequently required by the infant body and helps in the growth and development of the infant. The increased demand results in an increased production of milk by the mother. Any pain resulting from this must be properly addressed with the help of counselors and taking appropriate advice. Pain could be usually caused by infant positioning of the infant and as a result the infant tugs the nipple hardly in order to feed. A lactation consultant can help to correct the position.

Therefore, option c. is correct.
