Oh yes, my after pains while nursing hurt so bad, I took Tylenol too. I was nursing both though...I think that might have made it a bit worse.

I've only had one, but I wanted to die from the after-pains. Why does god hate women so much?

Yes, I don't remember feeling anything while nursing my first, but the pain is very real after your first. I don't know that it was more painful with my 9th than it was, say with my 3rd, but it is very painful just the same. I also took Percocet for those pains, and thankfully, it did only last about 4 days.

Re: Breastfeeding hurts more with more kids?

I don't know why, but they are worse with each one it seems....I've had 3 now. Also, don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but it seems that my milk letdown has become more painful with each one. With my first it was just a tingle, with my 2nd, it stung, but good grief, with this one it was like liquid fire coming down those milk ducts!!!! Thankfully, after the first 3 months it has gotten better, but still.......I had to literally stop talking it hurt so bad!

Sorry....didn't mean to hijack your thread .

That's what I was thinking. I thought they were bad with DD #1. Maybe I will rethink giving her a sibling, jk.
