I'm bf my beautiful dd, she's 8 days old, but it is SO painful at the moment, her attachment seems fine and I'm very careful about positioning, my nipples got a little sore in the first couple of days and they haven't really mended yet which is sore but not all the problem, when she attaches it's agony for about 2 mins and then it eases off but the pull is also very sore, I'm at my wits end and starting to dread feeding her so I'm thinking of quitting the bf.....please help!!!!
Hey Niamh, there's just been a long thread about nipple pain here with lots of info and links and at least one breast feeding counsellor's input. Also other mum's stories. The first coupla weeks are really tough cos you and your dd are just learning how to do it & you're probs really knackered! Hope you feel better soon and the bf'ing works out for you, if you feel it's the right thing for you both.
