I'm so sorry you are struggling with your breast feeding journey. You are doing an amazing job!
I'm in Melbourne and I am sure a friend mentioned she went to a laser and skin clinic for her cracked nipples. Maybe try a laser surgery that specialises in dermatology not just hair removal.

Oh you poor thing, you are doing a wonderful job to keep going!
One thing that really helped me when trying to get through the first 10 weeks with DD1 was letting the cracks dry under the heat lamps in my bathrooms. 15-30 mins after my shower each day our more frequently if I needed it.
I had terrible cracks on both nipples, my bub was vomiting my blood after feeds. I dreaded feeding her and was in tears every time. It wasn't a good time in our breast feeding journey but we did persevere and we did get there in the end!
If you don't have heat lamps in your bathroom try the hair dryer.....not too hot and not too close to avoid burning yourself.
I'm going through pain right now with DD2 at 12 months as she's cutting her top teeth. Why couldn't it just be easy!!!!
I wish you all the best and sending you lots of strength and positive vibes to get through it xx

I have had just over a week of thrush treatment now - seemed to be working maybe (a little improvement) but now DS has a cold and is pulling on/off so much when feeding that we are back to square one in terms of pain and cracks. I have my GP/LC appt tomorrow so hopefully she has some good advice!
