DS is 21mo and has one feed a day (bedtime). I'm 16w pg and for the past couple of months or so feeding has been really painful. I thought it would get better after the 1st trimester but it doesn't seem to be doing so. I really want to carry on till DS is 2, and would also be happy to tandem feed if he wanted to, but it HURTS!
Could it be something other than pg, like thrush? Have never had it, so not sure of other symptoms. Can I manage or treat this without going to the GP, as I am fed up with comments about stopping feeding DS now that I am pg?
Hi, I'm still bf dd, and pg - it was really painful for ages - mainly when she latched on, rather than throughout the feed. I'm 29 weeks now, and it's only recently that it's improved - can't remember exactly when. I'm sure I read of someone for whom it was painful in the 1st and 3rd trimester, but OK in the middle- maybe it's different for everyone. I've heard children quite often self wean during a pregnancy, though dd is getting keener and keener
