Common Questions and Answers about Breasts sore from breastfeeding


Avatar f tn So, obviously, we have been bottle feeding. Now that my milk has come in my breasts are really sore and heavy.. Does anyone have any suggestions to help ease the pain? Thank you.
Avatar f tn Anyone else have sore breasts & sometimes dull ache from breast to armpit; very uncomfortable at times. What have you done to help?
938812 tn?1297651988 Which is basically a yeast infection that babies can get in their mouths and pass on to your breasts during nursing. Breastfeeding IS uncomfortable in the beginning but most women are able to perservere and get past that after the first few weeks.
Avatar f tn Cabbage!! Wrap the leaves around your breasts it helps with the pain, swelling and helps the milk dry up if your not planning on breastfeeding.
383536 tn?1225030613 The only help I know to do is have a hot shower, or put something warm or hot on your breasts. The pain and discomfort should go away after you get used to breastfeeding and everything. But thats the only help I know to offer. Sorry! But I hope it gets better for you.
1454858 tn?1306784378 I agree it shouldn't hurt if the baby has a proper latch. it can be a bit uncomfortable when your breasts are full and the baby first begins to suck, but as soon as milk begins to let down the discomfort should ease. I honestly believe that smaller breasts are an advantage while breastfeeding. I have (now)36EE's and while BFing I had FF' trying to maneuver the nipple was difficult and it was almost easy to move baby around to fit the nipple instead of vice versa...
1301482 tn?1325722991 m worried that there could be something wrong now because my breasts are VERY sore now that I am pregnant which they werent with my 1st pregnancy. Is it normal gor milk to still be I my breasts this long after breastfeeding?
Avatar f tn I keep thinking what if my child gets some sort of throat infection from my breasts and I feel so gulity about what happened. I just feel so drained and scared but at the same time irrational. Wish i could turn back time and change what happened. Perhaps if that encounter hadnt happened then I wouldn't have given a second thought to this soreness. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

Avatar f tn Recently BEEN pregnant? Breastfeeding? Just stopped breastfeeding? Do your breasts usually get sore right before your periods? Is this soreness something you've never had before it began 3-4 months ago? When was your last mammogram? Lots of questions that may or may not have any bearing on your symptoms. Sore breasts just before a period is very common. Sore breast for months is not. Pregnancy can wreck havoc with our breasts as can starting or stopping breasfeeding.
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.
Avatar n tn i'm 26 weeks pregnant and have noticed that my left breast leaked twice while i was sleeping. i think it might be from one of my four cats stepping on my boob but i'm not sure. last night, i lifted up my boob after taking off my bra and a bit of clear liquid came out. it had a dot of white in the center but it was mostly clear. is this normal? is it my milk coming in?
Avatar f tn it is so frustrating. my breasts are hard and sore but my baby just cant seem to get anything out.!!!PLS HELP!!!!
Avatar f tn Mine helped by rubbing lotion on them this also helped my nipples from getting dry. Its just your breasts getting ready for milk.
7566904 tn?1394763978 My breasts swelled Up with milk after my son but dried up after a week they hurt though
Avatar f tn Has anyone gotten pregnant while breastfeeding? If so, did your breasts hurt similar to being pregnant the first time?
Avatar f tn how do u relieve engorged breasts. I'm 30 wks 4 days. n I'm nt leakin milk or anything yet. my boobs are jus so swollen n sore. idk wa to do.
Avatar f tn I never had trouble. My babies latched easily, I never had sore nipples, breasts, etc.. I think the baby latching correctly makes all the difference. After you have the baby, talk to the lactaion nurse (they're very helpful). I read the Dr Sears nursing book it was helpful. You'll be fine. Just take your time the baby really knows what to do. Get a good nursing pillow-I've always used a Boppy Pillow. When you pump you pump as often as the baby would nurse.
9536744 tn?1414122031 Ptosis is the medical term for sagging or drooping. Breastfeeding is often blamed for drooping breasts, but it's not breastfeeding itself that causes breast ptosis: sagging is actually the result of pregnancy and other influences. During pregnancy, your breasts undergo changes and grow larger to prepare for breastfeeding your baby. After the baby is born, breast milk fills your breasts, stretching the skin even more.
Avatar n tn I have only feed her directly from my breast but I would like to pump as well. One because my nipples are sore plus my breasts are a bit engorged & my bf would like to feed her. Do you moms think its best to only give her direct breast at first & pump a few months from now ...or?
Avatar n tn I have oral herpes and am wondering if I can pass it on to my girlfriend by kissing her breasts while I have a cold sore? If so, can she then pass it along to our baby through breastfeeding? How can we minimize the likelihood of transmission to our baby through breastfeeding. thank you for your response!
7226011 tn?1389330533 Hello, I'm new here. This is my first pregnancy, and I am exactly 32 weeks. While my mom was pregnant, her breasts gained 3 cup sizes. Mine have not grown at all; they haven't even really been sore. They also are not producing any colostrum. I'm interested in trying breastfeeding, but I was wondering if my lack of growth may mean my body is not producing anything?
Avatar f tn How do u prevent your breast from loosing volume/sagging or help them from accumulating to this point during pregnancy also after breastfeeding?
Avatar f tn s hormones start to produce milk to feed your baby. The night my milk fully came in, 3 days postpartum, my breasts went from a 34B to a 36E overnight. After two years of nursing my son they settled back to 36C.
435985 tn?1249067908 This time around I am in so much pain I almost had to go buy formula last night because my nipples are so sore and my breasts are so engorged. I had to feed her last night and I cried through the whole thing because it felt like my nipples were on fire. There are red blood blisters at the tips. Does anyone know how long engorgement lasts?
Avatar f tn I started having white crusty stuff then clear fluid when I was around 20 weeks. It was only now and then but then progressed and I leaked a small bit a couple weeks before delivery. I know production starts early. Makes sense since our breasts are soooo sore then lol. Some women don't leak or show signs at all until baby is born and that's normal too.
