My little guy is now 5 weeks and we have been EBF the entire time . We had a bit of a rocky start with cracked nipples which have subsequently healed and pain during the entire nursing session. The has definitely been an improvement in terms of comfort whilst he is nursing. I thought we'd never get here...
However, I would like to know if he initially latches on and i feel pain, does that still mean that he had a poor latch. Because if i leave him for a few seconds, the pain disappears and nursing becomes pain free.
What would your suggestion be? take him off and re-latch or just wait it out until the discomfort of the initial latch subsides?
On another note, i have noticed that my left breast tends to leak more than the right breast. Does the leaking ever stop? I am also currently using disposable breast pads to catch the leaks. What is your opinion on these?
Thanking you in advance
