Re: Nursing a newborn

I have been in so much pain the past two weeks that I cry all night while she nurses (its worse at night - maybe because I'm so tired?) and bite down on a prefold to keep from screaming [as loudly].
I broke down today and called my ex and asked him how long this lasted with my first. He said 2 months. Sigh. I hope he's wrong.

Anyway, I'm in the same boat. Great latch, no supply issues, no tongue tie, etc. It just hurts like hell. I am aware of my nipples every second of the day, too. They are just so sensitive. I can't do a bra or even a nursing tank because they are too tight and hurt. I'm just going around town looking like a dirty hippie with no bra and milk circles on my shirts.

Here's hoping its over for both of us soon.
Mama to Henry (01.07), Catherine (09.11), Audrey (04.14), Clare (09.15) and our newest addition, coming July 2017!
