Common Questions and Answers about Sore breasts from weaning

sore

Is there still milk drying up in it making it very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> now? How long will it take before my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s feel normal again? This was my first time nursing, so I have never been through this. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
little by little they have gone but now about two days ago, I developed very sore nipples. I was wondering if that would be a side effect. I just had my annual mammogram and they found a small cyst on the side of one of my breasts but told me not to worry. ( I've heard that before) I have had a lump taken out years ago but it was just a fibroid. I also take Levothyroxine, 75mcg every day and Xanax 0.5mg,2 to 3 times a day for panic and anxiety disorder.
It varies from person to person, my one friend would wear a bra and sports bra to keep her breast snug and she said it worked for her, i cant remember how many weeks she said it took, i think she mite of said 2 weeks or less.
also i have been experiencing pms symptoms for atleast 2 weeks now crampy abdomen and back sometimes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s nausea which is new to me and right now i have lots of cervical mucus clear milky like substance dose this sound like my period or something else????
I am in the process of weaning on hydrocortisone after 4 years of SAI and have made it down to 17.5mg per day but when I rescued to this 17.5 mg my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s became <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span>. I've been on 17.5mg per day for 6 days now......feet are sore but I'm doing better than expected.
So they hurt anyways because they were engorged, so I didn't know if it was from being pregnant again or if it was just the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weaning</span> part. Just this past week or so, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s are growing...but my nipples are itchy and sore!
It is about the size and shape of an almond just a bit wider. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s are both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> underneath due to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weaning</span>, could this be a duct.
Anyway it has been 2 weeks since I stopped. I had a little engorgement for a few days then my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s went soft. Yesterday I noticed that in my left breast (which was the one most fed upon by them both) there is what I can only describe as a thickened area which starts under the nipple and goes upwards (in a sort of north easterly direction if you are looking at me!). Basically an eighth-sized portion of my breast!
As I examined my breast I noticed it was only sore off to the right side of the nipple so I checked to see if I had any discharge, and instead of a discharge, milk came out. I understand that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s make milk long after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weaning</span> your kids from breastfeeding, but that has been a long time ago and there has not been any milk up until this period. WHAT is going on? Could it be hormonal or a symptom of the Mirena?
I am pg again, now 7 months after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weaning</span> him and have noticed very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> and tender <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s, almost feeling like engorgement at times (closest thing I can relate it too, though I know it is not actually that) In theory, if you weaned a short time ago, you wouldn't think you would have too mcuh tenderness as you are already "set up" for nursing, but I can never get a straight answer from a medical prfessional on this myself.
Are you feeding her from both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s during one feed? I was told from the very start to feed just from one side so that Brady gets the fore and hind milk and he hasn't ever had a problem with green stools. This must be why he's so chunky! LOL Give that a try! I've never heard of it being too much though.
I just finally stopped completly, but it took me about a month, first you need to make sure he takes the bottle well, and what you shoul ddo is pump and give him the breast millk in the bottle also alternate breastmilk and formul aso he starts getting use to the formula flavor, one he is ready for the bottle and formula then the pumping should start <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weaning</span> off, I startd pumping every 3 hours for couple days bc he was eating every 3 then then every 5 and then every 8 then once a day, then ever
Strong or even painful sensation when milk ejects Frequent spraying of milk from one or both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s Excessive leaking More than one let-down per nursing session Repeated mastitis (breast infections) Baby may exhibit: Fussiness and/or gassiness Frequent stools, often green, curdy and mucusy Gulping, gasping and choking while nursing Excessive weight gain Apparent lack of "comfort" nursing Discomfort when breastfeeding, sometimes so intense that baby goes on strike Possib
Several days ago, I started a wean off my Neurontin. I'm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weaning</span> quicker than I should, but no ill effects. I'm already at half the dosage I was on for most of the past year. I'm staying on the Opana ER for now, with Norco for breakthrough pain. Guess what? THE PAIN IS ABSOLUTELY THE SAME, with or without the Neuronitin. So why take such massive doses if they don't help the Pain, and cause a decrease in the drive for life and ability to think?
Once in awhile Joshua wants to breastfeed but not really anymore. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s are still a little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span>. I just wondering if anyone knows how long it will be before the milk dries up. For some reason I was thinking its like a year. I know they don't stay sore that long but just a question of curiosity if anyone knows.
hi i am 27 weeks and my boobs didnt start hurting untill around 14 weeks see everybody is different less stress girls everybody is very different last year with my pregnancy my boobs were very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> from the start good luck all you people should all be gratefull for the lesser symptoms.
I have been feeling a bit queasy lately and when touched my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span>, they also appear and feel somewhat larger. I'm so afraid to test because of the terrible BFN. I am praying that this is not the case and wondering when would be a good time to do a pregnancy test to be sure of the result? Also can any of you share your symptoms or lack of symptoms before finding out the BFP? Everyone's responses will be much appreciated!!
Im not sad(yet) mostly because I am in so much pain. Besides my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s being completely engorged and extremely pained I am so so tired and feel so weak. Also my stomach hurts and I feel nautious all the time. This is my third and last baby and I dont remember it being like this before. How long does this last and is there anything I can do to feel better?
Hello. I really hope you can help me. I am a 24 year old female suffering from headaches, extreme weightloss, nervousness, insomnia, extreme fatigue, trembling hands, intolerance to cold, nausea, diarrhea, and dry skin. I have been constantly sick for the better part of 3 years with periods of being healthy not lasting longer than 2 weeks. I finally got my doctor to run tests and my TSH level came back at .002 (low).
I have had almost daily headaches, morning sickness, constipation, fatigue, cramping in lower abs, heightened sense of smell, horrible gas, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s, bloating, cleaning fits, food aversions (I can't drink coffee!), the works. It seemed fairly obvious that I was indeed pregnant but I wanted to wait and skip a second period before making a big fuss. I don't have good insurance or a regular doctor so we wanted to be really sure before wasting a lot of money and time over nothing.
Also, my lower back is hurting again, my pelvis is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> and popping out of place, I have the chills a bit, but no fever, and my neck is sore. I am a little nauseous as well and can barely eat. I am not sleeping much anymore, I'm exhausted and now I am venting and complaining! Today is not my day. And after the little incident with Jesse choking and not breathing yesterday, I'm just on edge and freaked out.
• Mouth pain from teething, a cold <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span>, or an infection (such as thrush). • In an older baby, the baby is afraid Mom will scream. This is common when your teething baby bites and you react by yelling. • An ear infection, which causes pressure or pain while nursing. • A cold or stuffy nose, which makes breathing difficult while nursing. • Too many bottles or overuse of a pacifier, resulting in a reduced milk supply.
I know everyone is different but ill be 28 weeks as of friday and I feel something is wrong since my boobs an nipples arent <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> at all anymore like they were in beginning of pregnancyn but my main question is if they randomly start to leak which they can at any time.. would my breasts or nipples hurt prior to that? Next question is how can someone prepare to make nipples stronger for breastfeeding? My sister said she scrubbed hers with a lufa during pregnancy to make them tougher.
As far as boobs being sexual, of course, before we have a baby, there is no purpose to the breasts other than for pleasuer, but when the baby comes, everything changes and you won't get aroused with the baby sucking on it because you won't see it that way, you'll see it as the way to feed your baby and because it will probably hurt for about a week, it's definitly not gonna be pleasurful. Also I've noticed that I lost sensitivity in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s while I breastfed, it came back after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weaning</span> her.
I have a 5 and a half month old baby and yes am 11 weeks pregnant and have just about finisht <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weaning</span> maybe my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s arnt so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> to me because i feel whenyou breast feed learning ect it hurts more what do you think. i also saw my baby at 6 weeks 2 days via vag ultrasound and the baby looked good already a big strong heartbeat.
I always get pregnant right after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weaning</span> my baby. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s have never been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> till about 14 weeks pregnant (except on my first baby). I have had 7 pregnancies. I think if you still have some milk in you your boobs they must not get as sore early on.
I also found that I get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s if anything in the schedule changes. So far have avoided avert mastitis. BUt have had quit a few hard painful lumps that I had to pump and bf to get out. Lucky for me I also have a 3 1/2 yo who is more than willing to have a drink if I need them to be emptied more efficinetly than my 5 mo can. Don't wean if you don't want to. Sounds like you really enjoy breastfeeding, and this infection will recover.
I've heard it explained like this- baby cows drink cow milk because they come from cows. Babies come from their human mother. Why would you feed a baby or child milk that is not meant for them? Women lactate for a reason. Babies should have human milk, not cow milk. Cow milk is actually very difficult for us to digest. If you drink too much you will throw up and it can cause intestinal and digestive problems. That being said I don't necessarily agree 8 and 14 year olds should be breastfeeding.
Your milk will come in within a few days after the birth... your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>s are going to be really <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span>. Then your milk supply will adjust to what your baby needs. Your nipples are going to be sore for the first week because they have to get used to a little one sucking on them for hours a day, but that pain subsides. Hope some of this info helped!
For those that have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> nipples from baby biting or poor latching (I had that in the beginnin)g, I used Lanolin (from a company called Lansinoh) and that was recommended by my mid-wife who was also my lactation consultant. I was really on the verge of using a shield and Lanolin really helped.
