I'm new to this forum and desperate because of all the pain while breastfeeding.
My first baby had a frenectomy performed at 3 weeks old but I could never breastfeed and had to pump exclusively for 9 months.
I've just had my 2nd baby and this time, the frenectomy was done on his 2nd day of life. He latches and draws milk but I scream in agony each time and the pain only gets worse during the feeding. The nipple comes out all squashed and bruised and flattened.
Please help, will it ever get better? What else can be done? At the hospital, the nurse said the latch was OK.
