My third baby is 4 days old today. My nipples HURT!
It appears he's only getting the tip and not the bigger part of the nipple. He eats well, and as my milk is already in, diaper output has switched to the mustardy-seedy format, and I was excited to see that!!
So, since I know it's not really affecting HIM, I need help for me. I clench my entire body and curl my toes for every nursing session.
Help? He is moderately tongue-tied but lacation consultant felt it wouldn't be an issue considering he was able to put his tongue around her gloved pinky when she checked.
