Please, why is that?

Sorry about the pains..

Sore and cracked nipples occur when your baby's mouth is not properly attached to the breast.

When breastfeeding, your baby's mouth should cover not just the nipple but the nipple and the areola (that is the dark area around the nipple) that way your baby can properly latch and their won't be room for cracked and sour nipples.

You can take paracetamol to relieve pain.

Meanwhile, you can express the breast milk for now and feed your baby with spoon and cup.
