Question:I feeling too much pain in my nipple during brestfeeding what i can do for relif??due to my l'll nipple i m using artificial nipple.
Answer: Hi dear,
Breastfeeding should not be painful.though initial days mothers need to get comfortable about the whole breastfeeding idea ,once it gets used to,it should be a pleasureable experience.breastfeeding could be painful due to the following:
1- improper latch.baby needs to suck the entire areola while latching,else the milk flow won't be equal from all ducts
2- milk blister.a little white, clear or yellow bubble or blister on the nipple or areola which will cause pain while feeding. It is actually a little bit of milk beneath the skin, and again can be relieved with warm compresses.
3-Engorged breasts .this is when the breasts are so full of milk they become hard and tight and the nipple flatten out, difficult for baby to grasp. Express the milk,or massage the breasts.
4-thrush or bacterial infections.
But if any kind of pain accompanies with fever,chills and any redness appear on breasts should report doctor
Question:Mother breast and nipple getting too much pain . Please evce
Answer: Hello dear, check your nipple, it there any swelling or cut. Women are advised to keep on breastfeeding, as it will actually help the nipples heal....
Gently rub your nipple on your baby's lips to encourage him to open WIDE, you must get as much of the nipple in the mouth as you can, if baby don't open mouth, inserting your finger in the corner of the baby mouth to open it. If your nipples are already injured ie: lacerations, cracked, bleeding, it will take 1 - 2 weeks to completely heal, along with using lanolin cream. Good Luck....
Question:Madam breast is feeling too pain....what to do??
Answer: Hello dear
The pain and soreness is caused by pressure from the top of your growing uterus, as well as baby kicking or punching the area. Sore ribs are usually on the side of the baby's position and can be felt just below the breasts.
Apply a warm compress. Cover breasts with warm, wet towel for 10-15 minutes. The warmth increases blood circulation, reducing swelling and tenderness. Check with your doctor first, but soaking in a warm bath can work wonders with pain reduction.
