I have a 7 week old DD and I am getting extremely frustrated. It is driving me to tears because I am not sure what is causing it. I have watch latch video after latch video and can't seem to get it down. It seems like my latch is ok but my nipples are still sore and extremly sensitive. I have no cracks or bleeding they are just purple for about 10 to 15 minutes after I BF. I am wondering if anyone is familiar with blanching. From the symtoms(purple nipples, tingling in nipples after feeding or when cold) I have been researching and believe it is blanching or vascospasm.
Most recently she has been really fussy while nursing, I will take her off to burp her and she gets more mad and cries, usually happens more in the evening than during the day. I dont know if this is associated with it or not. I also have an oversupply of milk. My ped said I could feed twins.
When my LO comes off the boob in the first few minutes of BF there is a stream of milk shooting her in the face. It is almost like a water gun shooting her so I put that into a burp cloth and wait until it quits then I resume BFing. Any suggestions would be so much appreciated.
