I have been reading the posts for weeks but this is my first time to post.
Background info: My daughter is 7 weeks and I have had constant trouble with breastfeeding. I started with a bad latch and waited almost three weeks to get it fixed. I should have gone to see a lactation consultant from the start but thought it was just normal pain for a first time mom. It wasn't until I developed large blisters that I thought something was wrong. At three weeks I went to see a lactation consultant who corrected my latch problem, however things have not really improved. The pain level has decreased but is far from comfortable. I have been back to the lactation consultant twice and have spoken with a second LC and the local LLL but so far no relief.
Currently the blisters are slowly healing but I have constant pain after I nurse. The LC has checked for blanching and vasospasm but has ruled it out. Breastfeeding is something that I really wanted to do but it's to the point now that I don't think I can do it much longer. I thought things would be better by now but so far it doesn't seem like there is any end in sight.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
