Topic: help my nipples please!
help! the last 7 weeks have been amazing... Ivy has a great latch and nurses like a pro. so why oh why do my nipples feel like someone has taken a belt sander to them today?! she prefers my left nipple but i offer the right a few times a day and do most of my pumping on the right. yesterday morning i noticed my right nipple was a bit sore after pumping, but thought it had to do with the pump position, i was distracted while pumping and it was not 100% centred. it hurts so much i cannot pump, just hand express, and both sides when she latches it hurts for the first minute or so... the left not as bad, the right too much to feed her off of.
no new laundry soap, i did buy new leak pads the other day, but the same brand i normally use when not using reusables. Ivy does tend to latch then try to look around, yanking my nipple with her but (pardon the tmi) i have a lot of leeway with my h cup boobies! we both have the sniffles but very minor.
sorry this got long (and is typed one handed!) i have never had sore nipples with any of my nurslings before!
