Grayson has nursed 6 times in two hours--for 10 minutes each time. I think I read somewhere this is called cluster feeding? Do all babies do this? Or is something I need to talk to the doctor about--like a supply issue?

I am so exhausted! And my nipples are getting sore again

I was just talking about this with Lyndsay last night and she said even formula fed babies cluster feed as I was kind of wondering if lil man will cluster feed even if I pump exclusively. Hang in there and use your lanolin and or chilled cabbage leaves if your sore!! Youre doing so great!!!

Valerie, I'm going through the same thing. Aidan is nursing almost constantly. But it's good for your supply. I have found that lanolin doesn't help my nipples at all and in fact just adds to the pain. But I found a nipple cream that is lanolin free and is amazing! If you want to give it a shot, it's called Boob-ease.. It spreads much nicer and you don't need a thick blob of it. :-)

It is normal. It should only last a short time and then he will change it up again.

It is normal, so try to hang in there! Medela makes soothing gel pads that you can put in the fridge and then put on your nipples between feeds. That really helps the soreness in addition to the lanolin.

Just wanted to jump on the "it's normal" train. DD would have literally been attached to the boob 24 hours a day if it would have been possible, especially in the first couple of months. As long as he's having appropriate wet/dirty diapers I wouldn't consider it an indication of any kind of supply issue.

I've posted this to other BFing posts, but Mustela Nursing Comfort Balm is way more soothing than lanolin, doesn't hurt to spread on bc it's a nice cream, and you don't have to wash it of before feeling. A much better product. I ordered it on Amazon, but I'm pretty sure BRU stores carry it. That's where I got it with DD.

Yup, I'm going through the same thing right now with DD. If she is awake she's on my boob. I have also found lanolin to be painful to put on. Thankfully the pain has mostly subsided. Cluster feeding is great for your milk supply, so take advantage of it! Keep up the great work. Just remember how beneficial it is to baby.

I feel the exact same way! It's so painful, but the new nipple cream I got is amazing.

Medela's lanolin is very easy to spread. The lansinoh stuff is stiff and you need to rub it between your fingers to melt it a bit before spreading. For soreness and dryness (or to prevent cracks and blisters) most nipple creams work well. If you already have cracking/bleeding, etc the lansinoh is the best.
