    Default pain in nipples !

    my dd is 5 wk old. We had a few initial hurdles with BF (latch issues, cracked and sore nipples). Slowly but finally we have resolved those, thanks to the forum here and my LC.

    I feed my LO every 2h (mostly whenever she demands) and each sessions last for 15-30 mins(sometimes more). I still have difficulty in getting her properly latched to my left breast, it takes abt 2-3 tries everytime.
    I have a sharp pain in my nipples and breasts abt 10 - 15 min after I am done with feeding her. It occurs mostly after the late night and early morning feedings and only in the breast that I currently fed with. The pain subsides in few minutes and rinsing my nipples immediately after feeding with warm saline also helps. It doesn't hurt while feeding, only after the feeding
    The last time we visited LC (3 wks back) she said both of us do not have thrush. I haven't seen any white patches on both of us.
    anyone have any idea as to whythis pain occurs ?

    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
