Hi mamas, just wondering if anyone can tell me what's happening here? I'm just wondering you see if i need to go to my gp...
well...my ds is 19 mo and feeds a lot the last couple of nights he was more restless and feeding very frequently (we have had a sickness bug and teething too i think) and feeding felt a bit uncomfortable because of the fervour and restlessness.
anyway..was at work yesterday so no feeding (and stopped pumping now). Fed him off right boob when collected him and again at home. Then i was getting him ready for bed, bath, books, etc, and my left boob started getting some pains in it. I thought maybe it needed a good feed.
when edward fed it was quite painful, and he fell asleep and it hurt my areola a llittle when he came off. The pain is in my areola, and looked like a red streak was rising up my breast from this area. No lumps or hardness though.
I have put lansinoh on to relieve the tenderness and asked edward to feed gently which i think is helping.
but still sore and tender and also when i left my breast up to have a look at it.
any ideas? is it just the results of frenzied feeding or not? I've had thrush before and don't think it's the same. i have symptoms of reynaulds too, but no need to treat.
sorry for long post but wanted feedback from the mums in the know before i make appointment with gp.
