Hi! I am a happy mother of 2 mo old girl. Since the beginning I have a problem with my left nipple. It was a big hole in it so I was pumping the milk every 3 hours and giving it to my baby. The nipple now is almost fine and I decided yesterday to give it to my girl. the nipple and my breast hurts me a lot since yesterday. It is difficult to feed the baby. The pain is huge. When I started feeding my girl I stopped pumping. My breast got red in the bottom. I had Mastitis before and I'm afraid to get it again.
My little one has also tongue-tight but the doctor said that when she's gaining weight correctly the tongue-tight has nothing in common and the only problem with it in the future is problem with speech. He said that when the lactation consultant will say that the tongue-tight is responsible for tearing my nipple then he will cut it but she will need anesthesia for that. Otherwise he want's to do it when she will be at least one yo.
Please tell me what should I do - pump the milk again!? I really want to fully breastfeed again and be able to go out somewhere without worrying about bottles and pumping time
Thank you for all your help...
