i'm a first time mom nursing my two month old boy. so far my experience has been pretty much nothing but pain the whole way through. after the first week my nipples became severely cracked due to what i believe was an improper latch. his latch feels/looks better now and the cracks are almost fully healed however now i am dealing with what i believe is vasopasm and/or raynaud's-- i'm not sure of the difference.
my nipples are extremely sensitive to temperature and turn white and become incredibly painful with any change. the pain radiates throughout my entire breast. also, every time i put any clothing over my breasts even the slightest pressure causes my nipples to turn white and painful so leaving the house has become difficult.
i don't see any signs of thrush as far as i know. my son does have some slight irritation on his penis but no white patches on either his mouth or bottom.
has anyone else dealt with this? every time i feel like bresastfeeding is getting more comfortable it seems like i run into another problem.
