This is normal in the first weeks - the nipples are hypersensitive, but breastfeeding should not be painful. Both you and your baby need some time to get used to breastfeeding, but if the warts are still sore, this can be due to improper placement of the baby to the breast. When the baby is placed in the breast properly, you should feel gentle pull. You can help the baby by giving him the right pose and bringing him to you - ask your midwife for advice or use our handy guide .  

Tip: Remember to care for warts - let the milk dry naturally and try not to use too much soap while bathing. If pain persists, seek medical advice or a midwife.
