Re: How long did your latching pain last??

I screamed in pain for about 3 weeks, and the pain finally cleared up around 5-6 weeks. Two problems - baby had small mouth/mild tongue tie (that the pediatrician refused to see, but the lactation consultant could see) that caused the initial pain. THEN, becuase I couldn't stand to complete nursing on my left side, I ended up with a plugged duct, but I didn't realize it for a while because I was already used to so much pain while nursing.

Hang in there. I was really terrified that I wouldn't be able to continue nursing, but it does get better. Ithink there are a lot of mild tongue ties that pediatricians just refuse to see - the good news is that as baby grows, the frenulum stretches and it gets better.
