Re: nipple sensitivity
Any risk factors for or symptoms of thrush? I'm thinking things like antibiotics for GBS at the time of birth, a vaginal yeast infection (mom) or oral thrush or diaper yeast rash (baby), nipples appearing more red or pink than normal, dry, flaky, or shiny skin in the nipple area, or small, slit-like cracks. How about evidence of latch problems- nipples emerging from baby's mouth looking squished, creased, ridged, or shaped like a new lipstick? If you're not seeing any of that, nipple soreness/sensitivity in the first week after birth is probably in the realm of normal, but it's certainly something to keep an eye on. If it's getting worse or you find that new symptoms are cropping up, let us know!
