Re: If you can nurse through this...

OUCH! That made mine hurt just thinking of it.

The night before Kyler was born I was mad cleaning my older kids' room. I lifted my dd's mattress and smashed my nipple between the board thingy(old bunk beds) and the metal mesh stuff that holds the board. I had a blood blister looking thing on one side and drew blood on the other. He delivered a little more than 12 hours later and wanted to camp out on the boobs. So I had smashed nipple and newborn latch.

Re: If you can nurse through this...

Well, my son has tongue-tie, bubble palate, and macroglossia. Which, in short, means that rather than pulling my nipple to the back of his mouth, he bends it at about a 90 degree angle up to the roof of his mouth, which is almost an inch higher than it should be. And because of the macroglossia and tongue-tie(yes, he's been clipped, it's still tied) he can't use his tongue properly. So he more or less scrapes and bites rather than massaging.... My nipples have been cracked, bleeding, and hurting like h*** since he was born.

OW!!! to all of you.

DD has a tongue-tie, but we've adjusted and we're fine almost 9 months later.

Good grief, y'all are some tough women. "The weaker sex" my @$$.

I love these stories, it shows just how much we all love our LOs to keep BFing through the best of times and the worst of times.

Re: If you can nurse through this...

Wow you mamas are much braver than I am! And burned nipple?? It makes me shudder just to think of your pain!

The only thing I did was nurse for four months with mastitis on both sides and thrush, but that is nothing compared to some of you!

Re: If you can nurse through this...

ow!ow! ow! Just reading all of these makes me cringe. I think the worst for me was when dd #2 and I dealt with thrush...then mastitis right after! I have been bit a few times..most recently dd was getting her 2 yr molars and using me as a teething ring! But considering I have nursed for a combined 7 years with 4 babies, not bad! And I am still nursing my now 25 month old dd!

Re: If you can nurse through this...

I have a question- everyone that has had bad trouble was this your first time bfng? I ask b/c I had a great bfing relationship w/ ds1 and think that was the only reason I was able to make it through:

First week my nipple was so messed up from bad latch that it was partially off (about half of it was not attached) sorry I know very graphic. I got masitis on top of that and couldn't pump it It was very horrible and I only made it through w/ pain meds and and ice cube to numb it before he would latch on.

Then we had masitis again d/t cloged duct that I finally released (lots and lots of blood and chuncks too) and then I ended up getting thrush on top of that for about 2 weeks.

But I can say I've never burnt my nips while cooking (thankfully) or cut them while shaving, but now I am going to be super cautious!!
