8778737 tn?1413827423 Breast feeding can be so painful when we start out, I breast fed my son exclusively for until he grew out of it... The pain wont last forever and it is well worth it. Hang in there <3 There are nice gel nipple pads that I loved but they are expensive from the mercy mall, also la leches league sells similar pads along with lanolin (like vasaline) to help with pain.
Avatar n tn Had a baby 10 months ago not breastfeeding. Got my period a week ago. had the pain before and after. No history of Breast CAncer in my family.
Avatar f tn ) Oh the pain of breastfeeding is different than the pain during pregnancy. And I'd recommend a warm compress for now and any moisturizer should help with the itching hopefully.
Avatar f tn Once the pain stops* so sorry
Avatar f tn I breast feed for six months,its hard at the start and it does hurt a bit but hotish flannels over the breast when u rest i found to help stop the pain,and the pain was worth it,breast milk is priceless when breast feeding it gives u one to one bonding time with ur little one they grow up so fast so enjoy every minute u can just the two of u, all the best and just remember to stay strong :)
11970398 tn?1443134602 I had my son a few days ago, i just got out of the hospital this am, i had no complications but ive noticed i have pain in my chest(heart area) when i feed him, anyone have this?
Avatar f tn They sell this jell I cant remember whats its called but it sort of helps out. It is very painful I remember the pain when I first breast fed! It was horrible and I wasnt producing enough milk so I would breast feed her on both sides yhen give her 2 oz on formula. It gets better its not always painful Im sorry you're going through the pain. Go to the store and look at all the baby area for that cream.
Avatar f tn Support her body with your left arm and hold her head with your left hand to latch her on to your right breast. You have total control of her head. With your right hand move breast and brush your nipple off her lips. This should stimulate her to make a big wide mouth and when she does push her head in so she takes a big mouthful of nipple and breast. It takes practice! Keep doing it until you get it right.
Avatar f tn They have some nipple numbing cream... it is very hard the first few days to breast feed... take warm rags and sit them.on your breast... that helped me.
Avatar f tn I never had any pain with my first. My second is 6 weeks old and I haven't had any pain this time either. So it won't definitely be painful, but it can be. My sister in law had a lot of pain breastfeeding. It is better for you and the baby. You'll pass on immunities and it can help with hormones and losing weight. It's also much cheaper and more of a bonding. HOWEVER, formula is also healthy and you can certainly still bond with your baby if you use a bottle.
Avatar f tn Breastfeeding does not hurt if you are doing it correctly. The lactation nurse at the hospital will help and there are lots of support groups- go to them!! You can rent a breast pump from the hospital and it's 1/2 the price of buying one.
Avatar f tn She cant latch on to the left right with out causing me sever pain. So is it ok to only use one breast as soon as my nipple heals I plan on pumping that side. An when she gets bigger she wont have such a problem ot bcus her mouth is super tiny.
Avatar f tn What I did to prepare my breast for breastfeeding was squeezing the nipple and playing with my breast. I also bought this cream that u apply onto the breast it's made for breastfeeding it helps heal your nipple you can use it during pregnancy as well. I know this one may be kinda weird but I asked my bf to suck on my nipple and I would already start to use the breast pump I know you won't get anything out of it but it helps prepare for the sensation and pain.
Avatar f tn I plan to breast feed. I've heard to give it a month and the pain will go away, but to stick with it.
1092854 tn?1292620351 I have had prbs with my breast before like infections that lead to 2 surgeries and it lanced 3 times. now this is my other breast and its a burning pain in the nipple that sometimes shoots throughout the lower part of the breast. I have just noticed a dime size red spot just to the right of the nipple and its feeling warm to the touch. the pain is much worse when the nipple gets hard (cold). Im not sure if I just some how irritated it or if I should be seen???
Avatar f tn No. You have to do what's best for you and baby. Breastfeeding isn't for everyone. I only breastfed for 5 weeks and I just didn't like it so I stopped. Of course I felt guilty about it and felt like a bad parent but it's what worked for us and my boy is healthy.
Avatar f tn So, I started getting the chills today, with a huge pain on my right breast, so big I feel dizzy. I called my obgyn and he prescribed something for me to stop breasfeeding...The thing is that I just dont want to give up. I have been crying all day feeling down, and feeling I have done things wrong. Thank God that I was able to reach the Liga de la Leche (this is the name in spanish).
Avatar f tn Lumps during breastfeeding may be caused by blockage of ducts which carry the milk from deep in the breast to the nipple openings. Milk that builds up behind the blockage causes the lumps and makes the breast sore. Warm compress may help provide relief. Gently massage the lump toward the nipple during and after feeding and cold packs after a feed may help relieve pain and inflammation.
296027 tn?1287759043 t have a breast pump yet, so me and Greg pumped using our hands and a breast milk storage bag. I still want to breast feed her, but since they have become swollen I've been pouring my milk into her bottle. It seems like she gets the milk to fast. Are there any suggestions on how to slow her down, and should she burp after each feeding? Hopefully it all gets easier, as I'm still enjoying every minute of it. I guess I'm just looking for some breast feeding advice.
Avatar f tn U probably will have pain cuz its a learning experience for u and lo but latch is most important! Im a DD and had alot of problems but stuck it out and ended up feeding for a yr find a llactation consultant or le leche league.
Avatar f tn Does any you breastfeeding mom have an idea why my breast be hurting n burns... I had my baby girl, she's almost 1months now n nothin seems to relieve this pain :( just wondering what it could be.
Avatar f tn is the discharge liquid normal for a mother who only got 4 months of breast feeding? do mother who breast feed got breast cancer if they stop breast feeding?
Avatar n tn No.. i'm not pregnant anymore and i dont plan on breastfeeding how long is the pain and the soreness going to last?
Avatar f tn There is a great breastfeeding group on here. There is support for breastfeeding as well as pumping. I posted an article I found flow pinterest of all places of a n log from a lady to exclusively pumped for 18 months and her tips and tricks. I did both until I couldn't get my daughter to latch anymore (which happens quite often when pumping and breastfeeding). We were able to go 6 1/2 months. I am now exclusively pumping.
Avatar f tn Has anyone gotten pregnant while breastfeeding? If so, did your breasts hurt similar to being pregnant the first time?
Avatar n tn I have had severe breast pain in my right breast for about a month. It feels like I am nursing a baby ( which I have not done in 12 years). The Doc sent me in for a mammo and Ultrasound which showed microcalcifications. "Come back in 6 months". I have NEVER had sore boobs ( except while nursing). This literally came on overnight and I can't endure this pain for 6 more months!!!! Do calcifications hurt? Do I need to do something else? I am 40 and otherwise feel great.
