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

Hi my name is Rachel and I am 33 I have 2 daughters aged 4&5 and my son is 14 days old. I am breastfeeding which is going really well now I have got past the sore cracked nipples stage which to be honest was so painful I almost gave up.

I look forward to reading posts of like minded mums. Very Happy

Hello and Welcome, Rachel!Congratulations on new baby!Great to hear you are doing well! :aww:


As for sore nipples:
try to not wash them to often, as washing removes protective layer of breastmilk. After feedinf rub gently few drops of breastmilk on your nipples, it will heal them beautifuly! You could try "air" them for a few minutes every so often and change breast pads, if you use them.

It is common for mums to have sore nipples in a first days of breasfeeding.
Would you like to have look at a "latching" video, to make sure your baby has correct latch and is possitioned properly? Bad latch and wrong positioning are most common reasons for sore nipples.
There is a fantastic video in http://breastbuddies.nice-forum.com/resource-centre-f24/do-you-have-the-correct-latch-t205.htm and more information in following post.

And more information about sore nipples: http://breastbuddies.nice-forum.com/resource-centre-f24/sore-nipples-by-dr-jack-newman-t180.htm .

Hope it helps.
