frickin frackin sore nipples *vent*

I'm well versed in breast care. I struggled to nurse my first and made it through three months of hell to have a good bf relationship with her. This time 'round, I figured I had all the tools. Experience, book knowledge, and plenty of time on bf support boards. Yet, here I am, cringing with every latch. UGH! Dd is latching well now and my cracked nipples are healing, slowly but surely, but I am still in pain.

I don't need advice, just share in my pity party please. Anyone else hurt like hell the second time 'round?

Click here to enlarge I'ms orry, I hope you heal soon. This is my second child, but my first to breast feed... and we really haven't had any problems, though we just got thrush and ThAT is making it a little painful. *sigh*

again, I hope you heal soon!

I'm sorry your nippys hurt Click here to enlarge , I understand.

Nursing ds I never had a problem. With dd I've had precious few days that nursing hasn't hurt.

I hope that you start to feel better soon!

I hope it gets better for you! Sore nips are the worst.

I always forget with each new baby what it is like. I got sore nips with number three. It was the worst, and I was so mad, I kept telling dh "I know what I am doing, this shouldn't be happening" The good thing is you already know it gets better.Click here to enlarge

Sorry you're sore - it's the pits. I got sore the second time around too, but it didn't last as long. Hoping the same for you.

Congratulations on your little one.

Sorry you are in pain, funky. I had a lot of soreness and a little nipple cracking the first 2 - 3 weeks too.

Hope you are feeling better in no time!

Ita. It's knowing how wonderful it is to nurse lying down pain free and never having to make a bottle at night that keeps me hanging on.

I'm thinking that's about how long this will last, BabyKisses. I keep reminding myself that she's only a week old and this normal. I put up with a helluva lot more the first time around. Really, it's cake this time...Or, so I try to convince myself. Click here to enlarge
