Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

default Ouch!

Post by Drusilla on Wed Feb 11, 2009 6:45 am

My right booby is very sore, I am having difficulty with Daniel's latch on that side, he has been scraping the nipple with his teeth! I'm actually glad to be going to work today to give it a chance to recover:shock:

He has nipped me as well, but I don't think he is doing it deliberately, but the night feeds are getting down right painful to the point I'm wincing when he latches on - it feels as though his teeth are pressing into the nipple!

Any advice?

Tell us about yourself : People who have kids by more than 3 different men are SLAGS. They don't give a shit about the welfare of their children, otherwise they would be keeping their bloody legs shut and creating a STABLE environment for their kids, either in a stable relationship or as a single mother - because single mothers are perfectly capable of being fantastic parents. If you want to sleep around use some fucking contraception until you are sure your partner is in it for the long haul, it is not fucking difficult. Kids need stability - they don't need a succession of men coming in and out of their life.

Have you been using any nipple cream to help with healing? thats something I would do first if you haven't already.

Also its very hard to know what to do exactly when they go through this stage as a simple no doesn't work, the only other suggestion as Katie will say is to bring them right into the breast when the do it to cut off air supply very quickly so they will emediatly unlatch, while saying no.

Sounds cruel but its the only thing that worked for me and Olivia very quickly learnt I did not like her doing that to me.

I sat him next to me on the sofa, facing me, and let him latch on, a lot more comfy BUT I can't do that during the night, as I have just a chair, so can't really have him sat next to me!

Lil miss has always been a lazy latcher...more sucking the nipple into her mouth than opening to latch on. Makes for painful nipples at times when shes' being silly.

I'd definitely try the nipple cream first.
