Sorry I have been MIA for a few days or so. My DS was sleeping terrible.
On Thursday night my ds slept 3 hours then every hour after that :-( After the 3hour stretch I woke up with my left breast hard as a rock and painful. I had to manually remove some milk so that my son could latch. Even though this was an improvement, it still left me so exhausted I could barley keep myself from passing out!
Last night...my ds slept 5 1/2 hours and then every hour or two after that. After the 5 1/2 hour stretch..I woke up in so much pain!! My right breast was so hard and painful I cried. I tried removing some milk so relieve the pain and the fullness but it didn't help at all. My son at this point was screaming so I decided to feed him off the left..it was not full or painful at all. I then struggled to go back to sleep. When he woke up the other times I tried to nurse him on the painful right breast first but it was either WAY to painful or he couldn't latch. This morning I woke up around 8am and the pain was worse. I used my pump to try and relieve the pain but that didn't help at all. Now I am worried that something is wrong....my whole right breast hurts even when he isnt nursing, and now my nipple is bothering me I have messaged and used warm compresses and nursed my son on it every chance I get..nothing is helping.
Anyone with advice???
