My little boy is 10 weeks old. I have endured 10 weeks of painful breast feeding in hopes that things will get better as everyone tells me.
I have literally tried everything!
Been on antibiotics as they thought it was an infection. Now, being treated for Thrush and I'm finding still no relief. I have tired various positions but my nipples still feel sore and tender.
I have had his tongue clipped - a slight tongue tie. He has a high palate. I have seen 2 LC, a LLLI leader, a midwife, doula and 3 doctors and no one can give me answers.
My question is this: has anyone else experienced pain for 10 weeks and have is disappear? People think Im crazy for pushing through...am I holding onto false hope?
I know ultimately this is my decision but I am just so torn. I want so badly for it to work out. BUT, what if it doesn't...what if this is how it's going to be?
I keep telling myself two more weeks... but it's starting to affect the way I feel. I'm tired, sore and I can't hold him to my chest they way I would like to sometimes as Im just so sore.
Advice? Input? I would really appreciate it
PS: They are NOT treating his for thrush as he has no SIGNS of it in his mouth...maybe they should be anyway though? Could we be passing it back and fourth?
