Re: Severe nipple pain?
So glad to have helped! A hot pad or hot water bottle should be your first stop. You can also make a rice sock- you pop some dry rice in a clean cotton sock, and microwave it for a minute or two to make a quick hot compress. Just FYI- vasospasms due to trauma often disappear as the baby grows and the baby's mouth grows and he can get a deeper latch each time. You've toughed it out this long- if you can go a bit longer you may find things improve without much effort on your part. Till then, hot pads and sweaters, since cold weather is setting in and that usually makes vasospasms worse.
ETA: where in the HVA are you? I'm originally from Hillsdale (Columbia Co., east of Hudson).
