    Breastfeeding question?

    Advertisements
    1st I am THRILLED to say that breastfeeding isgoing wonderfully this time!!
    The 1st couple days I had to supplement after nursing just a couple times but as of today NO supplementing has been needed!!!!

    My question is tho about nipples LOL.
    WHY oh why does it hurt so bad when she latches on at first. It seriously feels like she is ripping my nipple off. I am so sore and tender it is just not funny.
    She just today stopped eating for 2 hours straight and started the 30-45 mins for feedings.
    How can I help my nipples not hut so bad??
    Also breast pads, any suggestions for good ones that are comfortable?

    I've been using Bamboobies (been leaking since before 20 weeks) and they're wonderfully soft and comfy! They don't show as easily as the round kind either-- they kind of contour to your boobs. And I haven't USED it, but I've heard wonderful things about Motherlove Nipple Cream ( Amazon.com: Motherlove Herbal Nipple Cream (1 oz): Baby ), so that's what I picked up.

    Bamboobies, for sure. I have a brand new 2 pack of the overnight ones that I was going to sell... Ill send them to you if you want them!

    I used Lasinoh on my nipples and it worked great... pain when she first latches too can mean that maybe she has an improper latch... I think.

    Glad that its going well for you otherwise.

    The Nuk washable breast pads were really great when I was still leaking. I liked those way better than disposables and they were more absorbent. I got them at the NEX, target, and wal-mart.

    It could be that her latch isn't completely correct right away. With Wyatt, he was so aggressive right from the start that he hurt me a few times. He was (and is) like a vacuum. The lactation consultants nicknamed him Hoover I liked the nipple butter by First Years better than the Lasinoh. Not nearly as thick and way easier to rub on. Also, after she's done each time, wipe your boob clean and express a little fresh milk and rub on your nipples. Lots of good stuff in the milk will help. When my mom told me that, after a couple days my nipples werent chapped anymore.
