Should I wash my nipples before each feeding?

It is not necessary to wash your nipples before breastfeeding; however, it is very important to wash your hands before each feeding. Hand hygiene, one shower per day is enough for breasts. After feeding, spread a drop of milk on the nipples.


Do I need to prepare my nipples during pregnancy?
