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.
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.
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 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.
283175 tn?1295537265 Ladies need advice again,well since last night my breasts have become extremly painful and large.that part i like the pain i dont,how long does it take for pain to go awy.after giving birth.its horrible as i find it difficult to hold jay against me,please say only few not breast feeding.any info be appreciated.
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...
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 Hello, I am still breastfeeding my 2 year old. My problem is that recently I noticed that my armpits are sore and slightly painful if I press on that area. It's not bad pain and there's no pain or lumps in the breasts. No fever symptoms either. Could this be due to prolonged breasfeeding and that my child randomly feeds at different times? Or maybe it's hormonal? Any suggestions as to the reason why? I also want to add that I am quite an anxious person.
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 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 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 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.
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 my breast are killing me, they are so sore,especially d left one. even when im trying massaging them,d lump that formed doesnt seem to go away.....does anyone have tips????
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.
Avatar f tn In my 7 months of breastfeeding my baby, I went to the doctor twice because my breasts became tender and whenever breast milk comes out, my breast felt sore. The first time I went to the doctor, she gave me antibiotics and my breasts became normal. 2 weeks ago, I felt that my breast is painful again. I went to the doctor and gave me antibiotics again. And now, I feel it again. I can also feel some lumps and my right boob is painful again. Could this be mastitis or a more serious condition?
5749518 tn?1391923991 Try putting a heating pad on your breasts, once you stop breastfeeding they trend to hurt for a week or two until it dries up and you stop producing
175662 tn?1282213656 You shouldn't rule out pregnancy. To everyone who has question about if they could be pregnant but say a test they took was negative I tell them the same thing I was about 5 weeks pregnant before I finally had a positive test. I even had my period and everything but knew I had to be and didn't stop taking tests until I was sure. Sore breasts are a pretty good sign you're pregnant but it could be a few other things also. It could be that you've been breastfeeding for 21 months.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 6 weeks 2 days pregnant with my 1st and suffering with really sore nipples. Does anyone have any tips to help ease this please.
7566904 tn?1394763978 My breasts swelled Up with milk after my son but dried up after a week they hurt though
Avatar f tn I was one that was not so lucky and got stretch marks. I have lost 32 of the 63 lbs that I gained with breastfeeding. I was wanting to hear stories of how your breastfeeding affected your boobs. I am grateful for my little guy and want to give him the best possible and I am not too terribly concerned with how I will look after but I just wanted to know if I have any possibility of having attractive boobs after I quit breastfeeding.
182767 tn?1317492237 for the most part my breasts have not been that sore, but the last coouple of days they are sore to touch and my left feels like cottage cheese, My husband who is a Dr. says it is my milk glands that are swollen, but my question is to anyone who breastfed for how long before my breasts will for normal again, and how long after you stopped breastfeeding did you get a period?
Avatar f tn m currently breastfeeding baby number 3 and my nipples have gotten sore and bloody with every baby. I just kept applying lanolin and let them air out as much as possible. As for milk production my milk doesn't usually come in until day 3 or 4 but then I have a good supply. Things that help are making sure you are well hydrated, letting baby nurse as frequently and for as long as wanted. I've heard that eating oatmeal can help increase production.
