I have already had every BF issue under the sun and have worked with a lactation consultant. Baby is 2 months + few days, I've been exclusively BF entire time through allllll of the problems and pain. That being said, I can't figure out whether I have thrush reoccurring or if it's from strong suck or etc but my nipples are hot and sensitive after they were fine a few days ago. After she eats I have white nipple tips and it's painful for a bit but that's nothing new. They are not red or pink but very sensitive and hot. I don't have any burning. I was treated for thrush and the baby last week or two after having it for like, a month or more... (the lactation consultant never seemed concerned about it and was more focused on her upper lip tongue tie, I could have been treated WEEKS before for thrush and extra-suffered bc I was dealing with still healing from big cracks and trying to get her to latch better GRRrrr). The baby is much much better at latching what a difference a month has made so I don't think it's from improper latch but perhaps from her pulling on it or strong sucking as she does that when she has gas or at night it is stronger sometimes. The one thing that makes me think maybe it is thrush is that a couple times over the past couple of days she cried when I went to feed her. However she also suffers from some bad gas so if she has gas she doesn't want to feed, but this seemed more like something was uncomfortable or bothering her about the atmosphere. I have noticed that almost every time I was not at home when I attempted to feed her, or if was at home was around different people she's not accustomed to.
About the upper lip tongue tie- I won't be addressing that issue further so perhaps it's that affecting the sucking still.
Would love to hear suggestions I've looked at every problem already and researched. The reason why I'm not reaching out to the lactation consultant again is because I'm pretty sure she's going to harp about the TT again instead of considering other causes.
