Treating a Nursing Dog's Sore Breasts?

I'm having a situation right now. My female Pit, Karma, who is almost 3yrs old just had her first litter of 11 puppies, minus one cuz it died after she gave birth. The first few weeks she was a great mother, but then I started noticing she was being more aggressive with the pups, biting their little heads, etc. Then I noticed her not wanting to sit down at all, I mean at all. I have tried pushing her butt down and she will not budge and now she is falling asleep standing up. I'm assuming all these symptoms are leading to her boobies. They are dry, chapped of course, and at one time bleeding just a very little from the pups sucking so hard. My baby is so miserable. I know she is, I see it in her eyes. I feel so bad for her. What/how can I help her to be more comfortable to lay down are even sit?

Personally I would consult your vet or another breeder. They might have some ideas for you on this one. Sounds like her puppies are aggressive when nursing. If this keep happening I'm sure she'll stop feeding them all together.

From my experience I found it easier to bottle feed if u don't have the patience or time then I suggest formula in a bowl because the mother is done.....I also suggest coconut oil or even olive oil just a little bit.,on mothers nipple to soothe the dryness....also the biting of their heads could just be a mother instinct and if she isn't hurting them she could just be playing .....I am not a professional or a licensed vet.......good luck and enjioy the miracle.....
