Re: Help! Baby is Breast Feeding Fiend!
with the PPs.
Can you tell us a but more about the soreness you're experiencing? When does it happen? Is the pain at all itching or burning? Is it stabbing? Do you feel like baby is pinching the nipple as he nurses? How is baby's diaper output and weight gain so far? Can you let us know why your doctor thinks your baby needs vitamins?
One thing that you may want to do right now is to shelve the bottles. It's recommended that moms not introduce the bottle during the first 4-6 weeks of breastfeeding, because bottles can mess with a baby's latching ability and using bottles can screw up milk supply. If you're going to a give a bottle, ideally you would pump at the same time. If you need to give vitamins- which in most cases are unnecessary- you can give them via dropper.
