i've posted my story in other threads already but briefly, my baby is 2 months old, she has a problem with tongue tie that can't be clipped (it's a more weird type of tongue tie) and shallow latch and i can't do anything about it besides waiting for her mouth to grow bigger. for a week now we have been ebf-ing (before i used to feed her bottles of expressed milk half the time) and i thought things were getting better - my nipples finally seemed to be healing. but since yesterday ONE nipple is all of a sudden REALLY painful again, i can barely take it anymore and i end up crying hysterically at feedings and getting mad at my daughter, as if its her fault
anyway, i recall reading in another thread that i can take ibuprofen for the pain? well i just went to get some and it says on the leaflet that it's NOT recommended to use during breastfeeding so i didn't buy it. so it is safe or isn't it ?? and if it is, how exactly does it work? how long before nursing should i take it so it takes effect and how long is the effect for? how many a day can i take? and if anyone has used it for nipple pain, does it really help?
