    Default I wonder why im in so much pain???

    Maybe...................













    cause of these?














    When she latches on I am in so much pain. I can feel her teeth rub on the top of my nipple. Its raw now and it hurts any ideas on how to keep her from doing this, cause shes not biting me

    WIDE latch, I do mean wide like there is no tomorrow. As they get older they like to slide off the nipple
    Also when they first come in they are sharp! So it will get better, but getting her on really well will help a great deal. Also try different positions so she's not always rubbing on the same area.
    Try some ice or a cold pack on that spot before she nurses!

    Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.

    im in the SAME position as you... so i feel your pain... literally.

    i feed carter football style on the side that hurts really bad and it helps a lot. but thats the ONLY relief ive found, and it still hurts when i do that... just not near as bad.

    and carter has a tooth next to his top 2 coming in now too... so he is biting even more. yay for teething!

    I thought you were going to say you were preggo!

    Ouch, those look like they would be painful. No advice since we're still toothless over here but I hope you figure out a position or strategies that help, ASAP!

    Making sure your baby is supported well (even bringing the pillows back out) can help, too.

    well shes started to acrobat nursing where shes wanting to sit up or wiggle while nursing. Its so irritating but cute at the same time I dont know how to keep her still, shes just going non stop allllll day. Things are a little better today cause i didnt have the pain when she latched on, oh no it happened once i forgot. But still a little improvement, my only fear is that it will feel this way the whole rest of our nursing relationship which is until 2or 3 i had hoped.
