2 weeks in/nip pain, cracks and more!
Well, we got through jaundice and what was thought to be thrush (it wasn't). I saw my IBCLC and realized it was a latch issue. Got APNO and help latching... Scabs are healed and right side is great; however, left side.... OUCH! I have along crack around the base of the nipple, where it meets the areola. I think this is the source of the pain. It is on the left side of the left breast. Yesterday, i started getting a white patch on my nipple after he was done nursing. It hurts like crazy for about 30 seconds until it turns pink again. What is going on?? Also, he seems to be gulping a lot and sometimes fusses when he is done. Occasionally (3 times total), he spits up everything (soak both himself and me!)
Any thoughts? My LC is on vacation for 2 weeks!!
