Re: Sore nipples... Help'

  • Ouch! Have you had your LOs latch checked by a LLL leader or your local LC? It's also possible your LO has a lip tie/tongue tie that is causing you pain and for LO to not latch correctly. Your LC or LLL leader can help you find that out as well.
  • I use a prescription cream that my OB prescribed for me....I call it nipple crack ;-)
    Here is the prescription- maybe your doctor will help! image

  • With my 1st I was sore 8w (ok), with 2nd I was sore for 4+ months (not ok)! I visited Lactation Consultants, LLL, pedi, OB - nothing, no ailment, no tongue tie, etc.; I figure I'm sensitive and my 2nd was a "barracuda". Although I EBF both, my 1st used paci, my 2nd used me (BF more frequently). ;)  Thankfully that passed also. Wishing you figure this out and/or that it passes soon.

  • Have you tried changing up positions to take pressure off of different spots. Side laying is a great position because it takes a lot of the weight off the breasts.
    Me 26 DH 31. Off oral contraception since 1/2012. Actively TTC # 1 since 4/2012. CD3 bloodwork, hsg normal 6/2013. SA performed 7/2013 - low count, low motility. First RE appointment 9/4/2013. Were told SA not good enough for IUI. Repeat SA and additional bloodwork ordered. RE suggests DH see a urologist. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3e32d9/thumb.png
