I try to get Avari to latch well. But when she starts sucking it starts hurting.. Then after she eats and my boob isn't as full my boobs and nipples hurt and and very sensitive and it almost feels like nerve pain.. Can someone please help.. Any advice.. She also wants to start sucking way before I try to get her latch..
I can't be of any help, but my boobs/nipples hurt SO BAD for a while. The latch was super painful and sometimes even the whole time it would hurt, not just the latch. And then they would hurt after. I would get shooting pains in my boobs. Especially if I was cold and my nipples got harder, holy crap. I just kept on with it though, holding out hope it would get better and not hurt and finally now they've stopped hurting. He was 6 weeks on Wednesday. I don't have the shooting pains anymore (though it does still kind of hurt when I get cold) and it doesn't really hurt when he latches anymore.
Maybe check out Kellymom.com and see if there is anything on there that can help? Hopefully it isn't anything major and it will get better and go away? Good luck!
It has actually been better these last few days and not as sore.. Pumping helped a lot.. I might have just been really full and not getting empty all the way.. I also found a good latch video and I tried some things they said on there.. And Avari is doing better I do have my 6 week check up next week and I will ask them about it then if its still bothering me..
