Re: Sore nipples/areolas & not enough milk?
with the PP. It sounds like you could really use some hands-on help. Can you tell us some more about what you are experiencing? For example, what shape are your nipples after the baby is done feeding? Did you have antibiotics during your baby's birth, or a yeast infection (trust me, it's relevant)? When do you feel the most pain- during feedings, after feedings, only at a certain point during a feeding? Any skin changes in your breasts (redness, pinkness, shininess, flaking, cracking)?
Also, how much supplement are you using, and what was the baby's diaper output like before you began to supplement?
Hang in there! There is a light at the end of the tunnel!
