I am a new mom, to a lovely baby girl. She is almost 4 weeks old now. I had some issues during the first 2 weeks of BFing, very sore nipples, shallow latching etc.
For last few days we are doing okay after i learned about the sandwitching nipple technique. However this works well on my right side, the left side still hurts.
I have few questions, kindly help me.
1. I get this horrible burning sensation when LO latches on, and then the pain stops. what could be the reason for this?
2. When she latches on, she feeds for nice 20 mins, and then she falls asleep and sill just continues suckling, but at this time, she loses her proper latch and just chomps on the nipples, which again hurts a lot. As of now i am just un-latching her, and i wait till she wakes again (if she is still hungry) and latch her on again. But this is getting little frustrating as she is almost feeding every 1-2 hrs. (assuming growth spurt)
I am applying lanolin after every nursing session, but this is not helping much
