My little one is 12 days old. We had a rough start with jaundice. 4 days in phototherapy and bottle feeding EBM since she was too sleepy to breastfeed. I spent 3 days with a lactation consultant to ensure she got a good latch after all the bottles.
For the past week I have been experiencing toe curling pain with each feed. It is not a latch issue. It is worse on the right than the left. The first minute or so is like she is sucking sand out through my nipples. It is hot fire at the nipple site but I also feel shooting pain up into the breast up to the chest cavity. I literally have to use my labouring techniques to get through the pain and I want to cry every time. On the left it subsides and feeding becomes relatively painless and comfortable. On the right it decreases but never goes away entirely. In fact on the right I now feel aching between feeds deep in the breast tissue. I have taken tylenol twice to handle the ache. Last night during a feed I was getting nauseas from the pain during feeding.
Based on this what do you think is going on? I am happy to answer more questions if needed to get this resolved quickly,
