Hi, I am on week 10 of breast feeding my first baby. I have been to see a certified lactation consultant because of latching issues and know my baby is latching correctly. They discovered that my baby has a very arched palate/roof of mouth so even though the latch is correct, she still pinches my nipples while she eats. I have been able to deal with the discomfort so far. However, for the last 2 weeks when my baby feeds on my left breast I get extremely sharp shooting pains throughout my breast. These pains are almost unbearable. The consultant thinks they are milk duct spasms. They come 5-10 minutes after she is done eating and last for over an hour. I have tried heat (wet and dry) and cold to relieve the pain and nothing helps. I have also struck out in a big way trying to get information about this. I had to start pumping (which does not cause the pain) because it was so bad and now my milk on that side is less and less. Does anyone have any thoughts or info that might be helpful. I am desperate!
