Hello...Im new here!
I guess...let me introduce myself and give you a quick background. My name is Jessica and I have a 3.5 year old (he was FF) and my new baby Jack (8 weeks) I have been married for 5 years
Bfing with Jack has been an up and down struggle, but now at 8 weeks, I feel like we have the hang of it and am starting to enjoy it.
But recently (probably last 2 weeks) I have noticed my let down on my left side is very painfull. Like I curl my toes up and breath deep to get through it. It is even painfull when I nurse on the right side and I let down it hurts. Once I get through the initial latch on and let down the pain is pretty much gone. I also have a strong let down on the left side. Once I let down, I have a continous spray from that side. My LO doesnt seemed to be bothered by it.
I can not figure out what is causing this pain. I thought that maybe I had a clogged duct, but I dont feel anything.
I was thinking that maybe it is because I have a strong/forcefull let down on that side it hurts that much more?
I feels like it starts at the top of my breast and moves towards my nipple and then its gone. Maybe hurts bad for about a minute and then its gone.
Any ideas? Anything I can do to make the pain stop or will I just grow used to it?
