We always advocate exclusive breastfeeding in the first 6 months. We also know it can be difficult to breast feed with a flat nipple.
But as it is now, your sister is already tensed as a result of the difficulty to breastfeed.
Let her know that emotion and state of mind can affect milk production. How often she eats and relax matters too. She should check all these and make them balanced. Definitely she will produce more milk for the baby. She should take plenty fluids like water, pap e.t.c and can also put baby to breast often, the suckling reflex will induce milk production.

What can I apply on my nipples that my baby has decorated with wound because of sucking?
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 above the nipple, that way your baby can properly latch and there wouldn't be room for cracked and sour nipples.
