Sore breast and nipples

Common Questions and Answers about Sore breast and nipples


Avatar f tn Just squeeze a little bit out after feed and in-between feeds and rub on saw arias. If breast feeding is hurting then your baby may not be latching properly have a look at the australian breast feeding associations page for some help they are great. An have videos on technique.
Avatar n tn Several remedies I was recommended -- Wrap the breast in cold cabbage leaves (that is amazingly soothing!). And/or, make a tea infusion (just any cheap, brown tea) with like 10 teabags in one cup, and let it cool. Then wipe some of it on the nipple. Let this air-dry. And/or, get some pure lanolin at the baby shop and apply it. I found nipple shields to be loose and very confusing for the baby, but agree with the latch advice -- that is VERY important.
Avatar n tn my breast are sore and when i pushed my nipple it hurt pretty bad been having sore breast for the past 12 days
1827365 tn?1410506306 Hello ladies. I'm a bit worried cause my nipples are swelling and red, and they are really sore! I get that soreness is normal in pregnancy, what in worried about is the swelling and the redness. Is this normal? Has it happened to you?
Avatar f tn I am currently 9 days past ovulation and my breast are very sore and my nipples seem to always be hard now. My breast starting getting slightly sore 4dpo and I know for a fact that I ovulated the morning of January 31st. Also I swear my breast have gotten bigger (even my mom said so). Has anyone had this sympton and been pregnant ?
Avatar f tn I cannot believe I forgot how it felt to have sore nipples!! And to top it off I forgot to bring the dang Lanolin creme! !!
1169162 tn?1331232353 I have been working with a lactation consultant and she says that this may be the best latch I can get until his mouth gets bigger and he gets more coordinated. The result is that my nipples remain tender and sore but only in between feedings and only when they brush up against something - wearing a bra is uncomfortable. I am now pumping to store milk in prep for my return to work. Pumping is uncomfortable and makes me much more sore - to the point that breastfeeding is uncomfortable now.
Avatar f tn My nipples were a little sore when I found out I was pregnant. I knew I was bc my whole breast gets sore before af & this time it was just my nipple.
Avatar f tn Any ladies with only ONE sore nipple/breast? How common is it? Do you suffer the discomfort or is there anything soothing?
Avatar n tn I had to complement with formula, now after many efforts I switched to breastfeeding only, but my nipples are very sore. He stays in the breast for long periods and when he finishes my nipples look white and flattened like pinched. They hurt so bad that I am thinking about giving him formula again. I always wait until he opens his mouth wide and latch on, but he alwys finish in the nipple and it hurts.
Avatar f tn I'm 5 weeks 5 days & my nipples are so sore and have been for around 3 weeks.
4499377 tn?1373555885 Our pediatrician recommended it. But then my nipples got used to it and it was fine. With my second son, I was never sore at all. I found pumping uncomfortable. good luck and I feel for you. I know it hurts. Hope it gets a better soon.
Avatar f tn My baby is 2 weeks old now & I have been exclusively breast feeding but my nipples are still so sore & sensitive. I have inverted nipples so im using a nipple gaurd- does this affect anything? When do they stop being so sensitive?
Avatar n tn unless of course they are dry from breast feeding, if so, vaseline or Lansinoh has an excellent cream for dry/sore nipples.

Avatar f tn Oh my, its just so annoying how sore they are and I want to breast feed and I heard they're going to be worse, so I'm guessing I'm not going to catch a break.
Avatar n tn Your breast will be sore for a while due to them trying to get bigger and the changes they go threw to prepare for breastfeeding. When they hurt really bad a hot shower makes mine feel better.
Avatar n tn Basically, 8 days ago, my girlfriends nipples started hurting quite badly and are basically permanently erect. She is 21 years old. Doesn't use birth control. Her breasts don't hurt at all. If anything, she said they feel quite comfortable. During the middle part of her cycle, she ALWAYS experiences huuuuge breast pains. This is like clockwork. Except this time, it's only the nipples now. Our first reaction was PREGNANCY. The thing is, we had intercourse 11 days ago.
Avatar n tn My nine year daughter who is already started to develop but has not yet started her menses came to me with the complaint of burning nipples. In the past week I have notice her breast have really began to stand out. Where there were once two little lumps have turned into small breast over night. Well, as I dried her off after a shower, which made her nipples feel better, I noticed them, both nipples, to by almost rare, bleeding like open sores.
Avatar f tn As for bleeding express abit of milk and rub on the nipples and let it dry. Breast milk has antibodies and other good and soothing things in it. It should help out. Back to the latch... Make sure the lips both top and bottom are curled outward and not tucked in. These tips should help if you stick it out. Also get in touch with the La Leche League it is a lactation support system of mothers who have been there and done that. Good Luck!
Avatar f tn I started introducing a bottle at a week old as my nipples were so sore and he was feeding 24/7 and it hurt. If you can, get Lansonol / Lansinoh for your nipples - it's an absolute godsend for sore nipples, apply it several times a day and it doesn't need to be washed off before you feed again.
