Between my 2 kids, I have been breastfeeding for 2.5 years!!! I have NEVER had a cracked nipple or really much pain at all (besides 2 bouts of mastitis).

I don't know what my DD did to me, but one of my nipples is cracked all along the base of it. There was like a hole there before, but that is healed. I thought everything was starting to heal good, but the crack has opened back up again.

I have just been letting it air dry and sometimes been putting nipple cream on it. She is 1 year old! I though she should have this nursing thing down. Did her teeth do it to me? Any tips? How long will it take to heal? help!
