LO is 4 weeks old and I've been EBF, no pumping except once when engorged in the first few days. We've been doing well up until and has been paid free up until a few days ago. I guess we've both gotten lazy about ensuring a proper latch and now my nipples are red and painful, but not cracked or bleeding.
I've educated myself about a proper latch and have been making an effort to make sure we get it right, which is hard due to bad habits we've formed. But it still hurts some even when I'm sure we've got it right.
My hope is that this pain is due to already existing sensitivity and that it will go away now we're doing it properly again. Do we think that is true, and if so how long might it take? Or am I still not getting something right?
