Mommy issues: I'm pretty sure I have Thrush in both breasts. I have incredibly sore nipples and constant sharp, burning and shooting pains in my breast that go into my back. They are so bad, they take my breath away! I have been using the Lanolin ointment and gel pads to ease the sore nipples without relief. The pain in my breast gets worse by the hour. I need help to try to soothe this until I can make it to my OB. Nursing now has turned into a dreaded task and includes a crying Mommy!
Now, onto baby issues, whenever baby nurses he gets to a point where he is either too full and just wants to suck or he has to burp, or sometimes he just does it and I dont know why, but he will throw his head head back and grunt and groan but won't detach from the nipple. So with already sore nipples, he pulls back and stretches them and will then scream. I dont know what it's from. But, it's very frustrating.
