Question: After feeding nipple pain a lot.. How can I reduce the pain??
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
