Ok my girls arrived on Monday morning and here I am on day 2 of breastfeeding them. Oh my GOD my nipples are killing. The lactation consultant has me feeding both at once and they are both latching very well. They feed for 3045 min each time and seem to be getting enough.
Ladies. I am in tears with how bad my nipples hurt though. How do I get through this? I feel awful thinking I may give them a bottle next feeding just so my breasts get a breather. The doc prescribed a cream I put on and I also am constantly wearing the soothes. Any other suggestions? Did you have this horrible pain because your nipples never got a break?
Thank you for your wisdom!!!!
