Vasospams/raynauds of nipples
 
Anyone have this? I am had it w my first son & now feeling the same burning/stinging pain w me second. I have worked on his latch which is pretty good. I was reading Jack Newmans website http://www.breastfeedinginc.ca/conte...ename=doc-V-RP
And going to start B6, magnesium & calcium but wanted to see if you mamas have other tips?

There was a medication I was prescribed, I can't remember the name of it. I only had to take it for a few weeks, and it completely cleared up my Raynauds!

Nifedipene, that's what it was. If I hadn't been given this medication, I would have quit in his first few weeks. I had more pain from feeding him than I did pushing with no epidural.

I did b6 combo, warm compresses after baby unlatched and lots of patiences.
Good luck mama its so painful!

I had a really bad anaphylactic reaction to nifedipen.

Only a few weeks! Maybe worth a try bc I am so close to quiting BF it hurts so bad!
Going to try B6 in the meantime.

Any side effects with nifedipine?

Anyone notice that their milk would slow down in flow once the spasms started?

I had it really bad... but only in one nipple!

Quick fix; fill a sock with rice, tie it off, and microwave it for 20 seconds, and put it in your bra. Alternatively I hear wool pads work too. Anything to keep the nips warm!
