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

Sore nipples

default Sore nipples

Post by nickyjones on Mon Sep 14, 2009 7:04 pm

My nipples are getting very painful, they do eventually settle down but I don't remember them being this painful last time.... however I am feeding Keira more often (as I am having far more initial succes and also know when she has fallen asleep too soon etc etc) so maybe that is it? But given the shakes I have been getting I can't help wondering if something is wrong. Of course it could just be my memory protecting me from the memory of the early pain (much like with the actual child birth)?

I don't THINK it is my latch but she isn't latching on with quite a wide a mouth as I would like? But seems the best she can manage. She is certainly getting plenty of milk as she has gained weight in the first 5 days much to the shock of the MW.

Thanks all.

Mine were very sore for about a week and half, they calmed down pretty quick after.

Just make sure your using plenty of lanisnoh, and if theres a bf group near by maybe get them to check your latch?

answerd your other post about shakes x

From between 3-4 weeks they gradually stopped hurting and now aren't sore any more. Yay, thanks for the support.
