Ive been breastfeeding my newborn for a little over 2 weeks. Ive been feeling weak and have a low grade fever of 100.1. I took some motrin and feel a little better. I do have nipple pinkness/pain when baby latches on (not when hes eating) could this be because of the nipple pain???? I also have been going a little crazy with a toddler home as well (18 months).
Also, this question is really different. My baby boy lies facing me completely with his eyes looking straight into my breast (this position works well for us). My lc told me to not do the C hold but hold the breast vertically. Does that work with the position I mentioned above? (She said this would help with the pain)And, I thought the baby was supposed to look into your eyes, my baby doesnt look at my face much when hes not eating and I didnt know if that position was keeping him from progressing with eye development (laying horizontally) any info appreciated.
