So my baby is not born yet but I was just thinking about this the other day and thought I would ask for advice from some of you ladies.
Ds had a terrible latch in the beginning and we had thrush plus bacterial infection for about 8 weeks. I have some pretty large scars on both nipples from the trauma of those first few months and because of the infections the sores took a long time to heal. The tissue is a whitish color so it is very different looking than the rest of the nipple. So my question is will these scars reopen or are they at a higher risk for causing problems with this second baby or anything?
I just want to be prepared if they will be more easily irritated or anything like that. I am assuming bfing will be much easier this time because even if there are problems I will likely know what to do or at least where to turn for help, and now I know not to let it go on for weeks before seeking help. Thanks for any advice! I am getting anxious and nervous to start all over again!
