Common Questions and Answers about Sore breast pumping


4499377 tn?1373555885 Wow baby2014!! That is awesome! I don't know if I have such patience within me. So far my little girl is really good swapping between boob and bottle thankfully. She does prefer the lazy method tho, but after a few minutes of fussing will give in and take a breast for a solid 20 or more minutes which is nice. In a few weeks I will have to go back to work, so pumping is forever in my future of I want her to have breast milk...

1169162 tn?1331232353 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. I just want to cry because I finally got to the point where I could breastfeed without pain and now it is all coming back. I have moved up 2 sizes in breast shells (now using a 30mm) and it is better but still painful, especially my areola. Has this happened to anyone else? Will pumping become less painful overtime?
Avatar f tn ve done both--- breast feed and pumping. To be honest, breast feeding only hurts in the beginning and really only did with my first son who latched incorrectly at first. My nipples got very sore. But then once he was latching properly, it was fine. It never hurt with my second son. Pumpking doesn't hurt but isn't exactly comfortable either. It's really kind of strange until you get used to it, this machine pumping your nipples. I didn't love pumping but did it.
Avatar f tn im so disappointed that i have to go back to pumping instead of breast feeding :( my little guy is just so much more unsettled on the breast than the bottle!

Avatar m tn If you have a sore on your breast anywhere the a breast pump touches or where it can be drawn into the flange during pumping, the baby can get infected from drinking the pumped milk. Herpes is not transmitted through breast milk, but through the pus from an active lesion. Therefore you can transmit herpes when breast feeding by not taking precautions to keep the baby from coming into contact with the pus (such as by keeping a layer of clean clothes or towel between your baby and your skin).

Avatar f tn I had to pump for a while to supplement and I also had to supplement with some formula (because he had lost too much weight). The pumping made me so sore, I could not wait to stop. I am no longer pumping now but need to return to it to get my right breast to increase its supply. I am going to experiment with some different breast shields to see if I can make it more comfortable. I have also started taking Fenugreek to boost my supply - it really helps.
Avatar f tn So I have been breast feeding and pumping since I delivered last week. But my nipples are so sore and just ache all the time. I know its pretty normal in the beginning but do you ladies know when it will subside?? Or any ideas to help ease the pain?
2218623 tn?1355278513 ve had some trouble with latching on, which im sure is causing some of the nipple pain! But while shes still in the hospital and im home im still pumping so that I can use breastmilk and get some relief since my boobs are KILLING me! But anyway, my nipples are sooooo sore.

689528 tn?1364135841 s nose is pointing to the part of the breast that is sore, make sure your baby fully empties the breast too every time to help clear the clog and massage the breast from the sore area towards the nipple as baby feeds.
5749518 tn?1391923991 If they are sore and super hard then they are still producing milk. I would always stand in a hot shower and massage my boobs, then would pump or try to feed. That's when I would get the most and it expressed much easier that way. Are you able to express any milk at all by hand?
Avatar f tn i pump during the day, and feed from the breast during the night. my right one seems to give 4oz at each 10 min pumping session, but the left only gives around 2-2 1/2oz. why is that? also, i thought that the pain of the "let down" would go away after a while. its only been 8 days since i gave birth, but its still very painful. i can finish pumping, and around 30 min later, i feel the let down, the heaviness, and the pain all over again.
Avatar f tn t know how to latch right last knight I had givin up and gave her formula and ended up pumping what should I do I really want to breast feed but im at my limit already
Avatar f tn When my little man was about 4 months old I had the pleasant experience of battling yeast on my breast. They itched and were sore almost the entire time I pumped for my little man. The yeast infection never went away with meds or creams. I was checked for diabetes because that is a sign of diabetes but the doctor told me that if anything my sugar was low and it wasn’t the cause of the yeast growing.
Avatar f tn Put a warm washcloth on your breast before you try to feed your baby and massage them. I know pumping hurts try it on the lightest setting and pump for five minutes before baby latches on top your sore side, preferably while baby is nursing on the least sore side. The first two weeks are the hardest. If you have any close friends or family that breastfeed/fed that you feel comfortable exploding yourself in front of they could probably help a lot.
Avatar f tn I had my baby three days ago she want suck hard enough to get the milk so now my breasts are so engorged they hurt does anybody have any tips??? I'm pumping but it's not coming out very quick! Please help!!!
