Is Feeding Becoming Painful??
- 7 Months ago
Breast feeding is a unique experience for the mother which bonds the child with her. But, if breastfeeding starts to hurt you, will you be able to enjoy the experience? No. Breastfeeding can become painful due to various reasons. Let's look at some of the complications of breast feeding and how to tackle them:
1. Sore nipples: This is becoming a common problem among nursing mothers. It is the cracking of the nipples which causes intense pain while feeding. The reason for this maybe wrong feeding position or poor latching of the baby to the breast, nipple blister or improper use of breast pump. This can be healed by improving latching, trying different feeding positions and by applying ice before feeding. Also, let your nipples dry completely after feeding. Talk to your gynecologist to get proper treatment, if severe.
