My baby is EBF and is 2 1/2 weeks old. We've had a lot of trouble with nursing. For the first week of her life she had a tongue tie and as a result it would take 20-30 minutes, sometimes even longer, to get her to latch. My nipples also became bruised, cracked and bloody. After her tongue was clipped she started latching immediately. I was so relieved. I began to feel a little better. Then, the pain came back in full force a week later and I actually noticed a chunk of my nipple was missing. My OB prescribed a compound ointment that consisted of antibacterial, an anti fungal, and a steroid. After a couple of days I felt so much better. This morning though I have felt the worst that I ever felt. I was literally balling my eyes out as I fed my baby. She keeps latching and re latching. I'm now in so much pain, even between feelings. The air even hurts. I'm so tempted to just let my nipples heal and give her formula. My husband is adamant that I continue nursing. I told him that he isn't being fair to me, but he's insisting that I continue on saying he's looking out for baby's best interest. I feel awful enough as it is and I really don't need this from him. Is he right? Am I being selfish to want to give up nursing or do the benefits no longer outweigh the cost?
