Re: Frustrated baby..pulling and soreness
I would see a lactation consultant, preferably an IBCLC, immediately. Hands-on help is key when you have latching problems! Until then, the tips in this link may help: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...to-breast.html
If your LO will latch after a bath, I suggest giving him a LOT of baths.
Some nipple soreness is normal in the early days of breastfeeding. But nipple pain is not. Can you tell us a bit more about the sensation you're experiencing? Is it a burning, an itching, or a stabbing pain? Do you see any changes in the skin of the breast or nipple- redness, flakiness, shininess? And when the baby unlatches, what is the nipple shaped like- is it elongated and symmetrical, like a pencil eraser or elongated and asymmetrical, like a new lipstick?
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
