The number one cause of sore nipples when breastfeeding is an improper latch. If you have sore nipples you need to make sure the baby is latching on properly. A lactation consultant will be able to help you if you keep having pain. Nipple pain can also be caused by a fungal infection know as thrush. If your pain doesn't get better of a day or two or if it gets worse please seek help from a lactation consultant.
