My boy is 6 weeks old and I am still experiencing pain when feeding. I have had his latch checked by a lll advisor, 3 midwives and 2 lactation advisors who have all said it is fine. They also checked him for a tongue tie which he does not have.
There is no damage to my nipples and I am using lansinoh after feeds as well as using a variety of positions when feeding and still it hurts.
When he latches on initially the pain is extreme, every time, and as the feed progresses it becomes just uncomfortable. The pain feels as if it is at the very base of my nipple and inside. Once a day he has a bottle to give me a break but I really want to ebf. What can I do to reduce or get rid of the pain?
