Ok im having a really hard time with this and I dont know what to do. For the last 3 weeks I have been EBF. I love the time with LO and feel so thankful that I have been able to breast feed.
I have a bad back from a car accident I was in 2 years ago. I was actually prescribed PT by my OB and reg. doc. while pregnant because the pain got so bad. But a week after getting the perscriptions I was put on BR and never got to go. The leaning down so that LO can reach my boob is killing me. Even when im sitting up and have LO proped up on pillows just the act of sitting in one spot for so long hurts.
Im also having a ton of trouble recovering from L&D. I got put on 3 new meds today actually for my bladder, urethra, and UTI. The act of sitting up straight or even in a chair hurts my lady parts.
I am allowing LO to eat as long and as much as she wants but I notice that I dont look fwd. to the feedings like I used to and just pray they dont last an hour because by the end im ready to cry!I just got done with a feeding and my back is hurting so bad. Would you switch to pumping and feed LO that way or just try and suck up the pain. If it was a light pain I really would stick it out but i am legitimately in serious pain. I dont want it to effect LO's eating. I feel like a horrible mom for even asking this.
