I have been pumping at least 1x a day since 10 days pp. Since i've been back to work (3 weeks), I've been pumping 2x/day. After the first week- I realized my pump was a little too strong as I had some bursted blood vessels and inflammation. A lower setting seemed to help but now, one side is cracked and red and I cry when my daughter latches on. pumping is not painful- but definitely seems to make it worse since there is blood in my breast pad afterwards. . .
Do I have to stop pumping?
I'm waiting for my break to call the LC- but any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
