There isn't any white bumps n his mouth.
I didn't completely dry up until almost 2 years after my son. I had him Feb 04 and finally quit getting milk 21 months later. I doubt it is a brain tumor, but it could very well be hormones, or the fact that you never dried up and are now just noticing it. Id call your OB just to be on the safe side though.
My son is almost 3 years old and my milk just won't dry up! I successfully got my son to latch one time in the hospital with the assistance of my mother, a nurse, and the lactation consultant/specialist. Needless to say with triple F breast nursing was as overwhelming for me as it was for my son so I decided to pump. I pumped for less than 2 months and when it was time for me to go back to work I switched to formula.
If assumingly she was HIV +ve, what are the chances that the breast milk particles would enter my system and I become infected. Do I warrant any HIV testing to be safe? Please advise.
A break or crack in your skin can allow bacteria to invade your breast tissue, causing an infection. The nipple discharge may contain pus, and the breast can become red, swollen and warm to the touch. Treatment involves surgically draining the abscess, and your doctor also may prescribe antibiotics. Changes in breast tissue (fibrocystic changes) Fibrocystic breast changes result in lumpy, tender breasts and can produce a clear, yellow or light green discharge from your nipples.
Hi I am only 12 and i have very very sore breast as they are red round the nipple and i can feel a lump,, they are very sore and tender i have to hold them when i walk. before you all ask i am no pregnant and i have never done anything with a boy thanks.
Dear Carol in Pittsburgh, Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is a rare type of breast cancer accounts for only 1 to 4 percent of all breast cancers. It is called inflammatory because the symptoms are usually a redness and warmth in the skin of the breast, often without a distinct lump. It can be mistaken for an infection and initially be treated with antibiotics. IBC would not get better on the antibiotics, and symptoms would be unlikely to resolve on their own within a day or two.
Today I developed a lump in my right breast about an inch above my nipple. My skin is slightly red in this area and the lump is painful. It cannot be seen with the naked eye but is just under the skin surface.
Hot showers or warm compresses and massaging your breast that is blocked is what I was told when I had a blocked duct.
after my boyfriend sucked my breast so hard that my nipples became red i noticed the second day that their was some blood on my nipples and my breast hurts a little ! i'm kind of worried ! is it because he sucked it to hard ? or is their something wrong?
Hi! Is it on top of your skin, or underneath? If you have questions, I'd contact your OB/GYNE and ask him/her to take a quick look.
I did the sex wearing condom but during the sex I did one mistake that I once sucked the breast of my partner. I felt some liquid (small amount) in my mouth but I don’t know weather it was milk or some other body fluids which came in my mouth. I immediately wiped (swabbed) the liquid on my shirt sleeve.
Any suggestions or should I call my dr also do I call my ob or my primary care provider? Ugh so frustrated any advice is appreciated!
Well the other thing to dirnk is 16-20oz of water 20 min before your breast feed. This helps your let down and makes more milk. I had to do that when my baby was in the NICU and I pumped every other feed. The oatmeal is a good thing too as other poster said. Fennel has been used for centuries but doea not has as god effect as the Fenugreek or mother's milk tea! The best resource with video's is to llook up Jack Newman who is the leading BF dr.
Ya beer works. Obviously no more than 1.
I'm seriously thinking of renting a hospital grade pump to help clear it up, since my dd gets frustrated, abuses my nipple and probably is making things worse. I'm also going to start putting lanolin on after nursing to soften up the skin. Does this sound like a good plan? Any other recommendations? I'm off to take some Tylenol now; hopefully that will take the edge off the pain. Thanks for any help you can offer.
At first, I thought the sore boob might be an early pregnancy sign but nope, I am certain now it is not and it is a hard lump. I don't think it is mastitis because I am not red or feverish (and my DD is now 8 months old and is breastfeeding well). I haven't been engorged or anything so I am not sure what has caused this, but is there anything I can do beyond nursing her frequently and having hot baths, showers, compresses?

I am 19yrs old. during my periods when i squeeze my left breast little drop of milk comes out and after it changes into light red color. please advice is it ok or i am suffering from any kind of disease.
During my last period about 10 days ago I noticed a milky coloured discharge coming out of both nipples if pressure is put on breast. The nipples are not red or sore and my breasts are not tender and as I was on my period i don't think I am pregnant. I am 26, don't have any children but I have been feeling very clucky recently. I can't feel any abnormal lumps or bumps and everything else feels normal.
I've notice in the last week I've had two red spots on my right breast below the nipple they are really red but it is not acne. I am really worried. Help?
It is the babies way of building up your milk supply. If that is what it is one of my lactation consultants said those growth spurts can last up to a week. If you don't know about it, which a lot of women don't, you think that you aren't supplying enough milk and start supplementing and often give up. I highly suggest talking to a lactation consultant and/or your pediatrician to be sure that is what it is or if it is something else.
Its only been a week, usually the minimum time (that I've heard) it taking for your milk to dry up is 2 weeks (and that is really fast). Of course you're really not supposed to touch your boobs at all or even take warm showers to help 'dry up'. Idk about you but I couldn't imagine not using it if I had it, not all women get that lucky. (Personally I'm going to donate my pumped milk, they use it for preemies and sick babies whose mothers can't produce enough milk. It really does save lives.

a few days ago i had found a hard lump in the upper part of my right breast. it is painful is that normal?
It's a fast progressing infection. This is one of the main reasons I didn't breastfeed my girls. My mother told me horror stories about the mastitis she had. She thought she had the flu and had been struggling with my newborn brother to get him to nurse. One of her breasts was so sore she couldn't touch it. She had a fever and a red streak on her breast. She thought this was all just something she had to suffer through.
