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 red boob?

Post by kay on Fri Aug 06, 2010 8:02 pm

when i was getting ready for bed tonight, i noticed my right boob was red and quite hot, stemming from the nipple outwards.
It doesnt feel sore or itchy, but is red and hot to the touch.

any ideas? im almost 33 weeks now. Havent had any leakage yet, although there is still milk there (at least there was i let dave anywhere near them )
