I don't understand this at all. In the beginning there was the normal "just starting" pain. It went away, but then a few weeks later the pain started coming back.
Now it's starting to just hurt at times. The pain isn't happening with every feed though.
I've checked his mouth, no thrush. My nipples are not scaly, not red, and they don't burn while nursing. So I'm pretty sure this pain is NOT thrush.
The only thing I can see wrong with his latch is his upper lip. I'm always having to pull it out it seems. But I'm reading that a curled in upper lip shouldn't really cause pain?
When they hurt it feels like they're being pinched. I'm starting to feel pain more often, and it's really starting to discourage me.
Not only that, but I just fought my THIRD case of mild mastitis. Each time it was in the same exact spot.
I really don't have much of an option. LO will not take a bottle from me, and he's only really taken one 3 times from DH.
Please help. LO turns 3 months on Saturday. I don't know how much more of this I can take!
