From the beginning, you try to take care of him as best as possible, change your clothes, dress warmly, breastfeed ... just what to do when the latter becomes a torment and a cause of pain for us?

It is best prevent such problems by frequently attaching the baby to the breast, but if it becomes stagnant, you must act immediately.
