    Re: nipple vasospasm?

    It sounds like vapospasms to me as well. My OB did prescribe the same medicine for me, but after taking just one pill, I became dizzy and lightheaded. It freaked me out b/c my blood pressure is...

    Re: thrush? mastitis? normal?

    It sounds to me like vasospasms. I had them as well as several other on the board. If your nipples turn colors (blanching) then that's probably what it is.

    I used warm compresses and advil. ...

    Re: how to heal nipple trauma?

    I'm sorry you are in so much pain!! :hug

    The rice socks worked for me b/c they stayed warmer for longer. Plus they were easy to just shove into my bra.

    If it is really bad, you could ask...

    Re: how to heal nipple trauma?

    Sorry to hijack, but is there a site where I could get the amounts of each? My OB won't give me APNO.

    OP - I have had vapospasms as well and often just hung my girls into a bowl of salt water....

    Re: Clogged Duct Question

    I did take some motrin, nursed, pumped, and nursed some more. Now I do have a red streak from the areola and away from it (about 1/2 inch). I have no fever or chills....just tired. If there is any...

    Re: Reflux?

    My LO has reflux and has been on Zantac since she has been 2 weeks old. She is now almost 7 weeks. It has made a world of difference! If you are leary of giving your LO meds, then I would try to...

    Clogged Duct Question

    Hi -

    My little one is almost 7 weeks (Thursday), and two nights ago she slept for 5hours. I was a little engorged on the one side so I pumped just to relieve the pressure.

    Re: Close to giving up

    I also agree - get the tongue tie fixed! Breastfeeding is an issue now and it can lead to speech/eating issues when they are toddlers.

    Be persistent!

    I totally agree - sometimes natural things don't come easy. I wish people would have warned me about how hard breastfeeding is. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE it, but wow! Those first several months...

    Re: Growth Question

    Thanks! Her poops are great - no green at all. She is not a big spitter either.

    I guess she is just a chunky monkey who loves her mommy's milk! :love

    Growth Question

    I have a very rapid letdown - it occurs literally within seconds of her lips touching my breast. She does a great job controlling the flow for the most part (sometimes she is coughing and...

    Re: Nifedipine and vasospasms

    I just found this thread. My LC along with my OB just prescribed Nifedipine for my vasospasms. I only have it in one breast and it is most painful right when she latches on.

    My nipples really don't look bad. No cracks or bleeding - just slightly bruised. The one is VERY sensitive to anything touching them (except the pad).

    Thanks for the link - I'll go read it.

    LO is 4 weeks, two days. She was in the NICU for 5 days so I have only been breastfeeding full time for 3 weeks, 5 days.

    Re: Help, Please! Painful nursing.

    I do have prescription motrin from my delivery. Haven't really used much of it. How long would that be okay to take? It really does help, I'm just afraid it's masking the problem.

    Re: Help, Please! Painful nursing.

    That is what the one LC thought it was. I really don't have much blanching, but I definitly have a rapid and forceful letdown and I often get the feeling that she is clamping to slow the flow.
