i have a 10 day old son - and we have had no problems w/ breastfeeding. since my milk came in, he has been nursing great and has around 3-5 soiled diapers daily and 6 wet diapers. we went in after 1 week to the pediatrician's and he was above his birth weight- so his pediatrician was really happy.
so my question is, i feel comfortable breastfeeding, i have NO pain at all, he seems to be nursing well (in terms of weight gain and diapers) -- but i just noticed his upper lip is kind of chapped-ish?? i can't tell if it's a blister or just chapped.
i turned on a humidifier in the house in case that was it - but i wanted to know if this is common....do babies get chapped lips from nursing?
my nipples are NOT sore- but i wanted to know if it's too dry in my house perhaps?...or does he have a bad position/latch which is causing this chapped lips thing? it's not too bad - but enough where my husband noticed it and said - wow, he has chapped lips.
should i put lansinoh on my nipple or areola so he kind of gets it more moisturized?
