I have a 9 week old who is not latching on right and it really hurts. Both a LC and an OB/Gyn (who didn't look at me just told her I was in pain and she prescribed canadian nipple ointment) said I had a yeast infection. My DD has no sign of yeast (just left the peds office) and I've been driving myself crazy with a no sugar no carbs diet for the last week. Anyway upon some more research I came across a post about vasospasm and how a poor latch can cause it. After my DD comes off the breast my nipple is severly creased and turns white at the tip. When I went to see the LC she really didn't help me, she lached my DD on using her hands and not allowing me to do it myself so I still don't know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions to help me. I do think she's not opening her mouth wide enough and her lips don't look like a fish. I hope I'm not too late in teaching her.help ty.
