    nipple pain

    Advertisements
    So today I have been have really really bad pain in just my right nipple. It hurts sooooo bad! Everytime he nurses off of it I can hardly take it.

    Does anyone know what it could be? And what would help with the pain? do you think lanolin would still help??

    First and foremost, check his latch. DD got lazy with her latch and I had a lot of pain from that. Also I had pain from pumping on too high of a setting.
    You can try lanolin. I did, and it helped. Even better than lanolin, express a little breast milk and apply for sore/cracked nipples.

    could it be a clogged duct? Is it just your nipple itself or the entire arieola (sp) area?

    I had a blocked duct and OMG it was so painful. It hurt my entire boob though and it swelled up.

    Check his mouth for thrush if it doesnt turn out to be a bad latch or clogged duct. Thats what thrush felt like to me.

    I have had thrush (we) and a clogged duct. Idk its just one nipple its not the whole breasted. Ds has no signs of thrush and neither do I. He is nursing on it and it feels kinda burning/pain and I cant feel any clogged ducts?

    That sounds like thrush to me, more so than clogged ducts/mastitis. When I had clogged ducts, I could feel hard nodes in the breast and the whole thing felt so sore and warm to the touch....like it was bruised on the outside too. I never had nipple pain except for when I had cracked and bleeding nipples.

    Try latching and if there is pain try repositioning and latch again. That often is the problem. If that doesn't help then check for the other things people mentioned like a clogged duct, bruising etc
