  3. Re: split spot on areola keeping me from nursing!

    Thank you, and about the infection I don't see any signs of infection, but I wonder if there could be something that just doesn't have any symptoms. BUT - - this side has been different from the...
  4. Re: desparate - should I try nipple shields?

    I would not be nursing today, at 19 months, if not for the nipple shield getting me through the pain in the beginning. I used them for a few days in the hospital and shortly after for latch problem,...
  5. Re: split spot on areola keeping me from nursing!

    I went 9 days without letting her nurse that side, then started by letting her nurse upside down so that her top teeth were on the bottom. That didn't work because her top teeth then bit into that...
  6. Re: voume to expect and supply question

    Thank you so much, you're saying that the supply should pick back up when she starts nursing so that is great news, I didn't know that, I thought once you lost it at this point it might be gone for...

    I haven't had any response to this post on the 12 mo+ area and just realized I might be more likely to get information from this pumping forum which I just realized is here, so most of the following...
  8. Re: split spot on areola keeping me from nursing!

    Thank you for the support. I am going on my 5th day now resting that side, although pumping several times a day. The pumping doesn't open up the gash, but I do notice that there is blood along the...

    Have you tried a nipple shield over the wound? I'm having a similar problem, I was bitten by my lo weeks ago and the wound will not heal. So far I'm not having any luck getting her to use the shield...
  10. Re: split spot on areola keeping me from nursing!

    One more thing. I have tried putting my just pumped breast milk in the nipple shield to coax her to try it. I've tried just offering her the breast with the nipple shield when I know she's hungry,...
  11. Re: split spot on areola keeping me from nursing!

    Thank you mommal. I am on my second day this time of having her off that side and it is closed up and looks better. I really dread testing it but may do so tonight or I may wait for another day if...

    The cover that I got that had the wire that pops out was very inexpensive, it was one of those deals where you only paid shipping, I got an email with the offer while I was pregnant. I can't...
  16. Re: Fussy, unhappy, constant pain during the day and while s

    Is it more on one side or the other? I don't have much advice because I never figured out my problem for sure but wanted to say that we went through what sounds like the same thing and it passed...
  17. Re: This HURTS! What's going on?

    I've had that twice and it is so painful, and scary because I was also afraid it was or would turn into mastitis. Both times mine had one large lump so I could tell right where the problem was. ...

    Oh, and I just saw mommal's post and I totally agree to get good guidance from someone with more experience than me. I only had my baby 11 weeks ago and it's all new! I only know what I've...

    Re: Wife has painful feedings

    Also meant to say that I also had the blisters, from what I learned it was from "blanching", the baby wasn't putting the whole nipple/aerola into her mouth in order to massage the milk out properly,...
