I had a very very rocky start... am still a little wobbly I had Raynauds Syndrome when I started breast-feeding. I was not showing all the symptoms as stated on web about this condition. My nipples were never with White or blue after the feed. But the pain that I went through the first 8 weeks of being a mother was really bad. Would not like to experience that every again. After coming very close to supplementing my baby I turned to this forum, and I don’t what it was that kept me just to go on with BF.
My breast still hurts when LO starts feeding but then after a few minutes the pain subsides.
I had always heard that BF in one of the wonderful experiences, well I never felt. (I still don’t know how that feels!!)
Coming back to the Raynauds Syndrome, I started on Vitamin B6, Hot compresses after BF, taking bath twice a day staying really warm in this year’s NY winter... helped me with pain.
I used to get really mad and irritable when anyone said to me.... don’t worry this will pass... it will get better. Even today in this weather my breast hurts when I go out.
Well now I know.. it does pass..... Either it will get better ... or u will get used to the pain In my case it was 50-50
My LO turns 4 months this Saturday, she has already doubled her birth-weight. She is one big eater, I am barely keeping up with her demands, but its working. I don’t know how.... but its working!
And last week... she rolled over... the cutest thing I have ever seen!!!
Thanks guys., for always being here with kind and motivating words! I recommend these forums to all my friends and colleagues.
Will keep sharing..... BreastFeeding Rocks!!!
