Hi blackberry smile things are going much easier now

Still using the pads on the left side, doesn't hurt much at all now hardly anything, and the right doesn't at all

Ds is getting weighed on tue so hopefully he's still gaining, me and dh think he is

And got him right down on the formula to just one bottle before bed

So seems to be a lot better

Those multi mam compresses are really good
Thanks for telling me about them

Just managed to bf off the left hand side
And it was painful but not as painful as it was

I think the multi mam compreses are helping as they don't feel so sore

I'm actually expressing off that side tonight in the hope I can give it chance to heal

And I hope I can talk to the bfc tomorrow

You poor thing sad

I had a very sore nipple that turned out to be infected- antibiotic cream (from doc), jelonet and lasinoh (plus expressing from that side) healed it in a few days.

Kellymom has some good info on nipple healing.

Also my nipple is bleeding slightly and tonight I actually could take off my bra because my nipple had stuuck to it
so I had to sort of soak it off in the bath

Could only get multimam compresses today in my local boots got them on now

think they are helping

im windering if I should expreas from the left breast for a day or two until it heals

the bf counsellor didnt pick up so I left a message then sge called me back while I was out and she left me a message

so hopefully I will be able to talk to her tomorrow

Multi mam compresses were the only thing that helped me, like shatter said. I used them for about 6 weeks. But I agree you need to speak to bf counsellor about latch, DS latch on the left was terrible and not until I sorted that did they heal. Sorry you're in pain.
