Ouch….that hurts! Then I see that angelic face, and the pain instantly vanishes.
Isn’t this every new mom’s story when she is learning to nurse her baby? Even though sore and chapped nipples hurt while feeding, the look on the baby’s face instantly takes away all the discomfort. Sore nipples are an inevitable part of nursing the baby. With patience and some help, we can overcome this problem.
Why does breastfeeding hurt?
Breastfeeding is an important step in a new mom’s journey. We are confused and nervous, but also willing to learn how to nurse our baby. While breastfeeding has some amazing benefits for the baby, it can be a tough skill to master for some moms. Breastfeeding is not supposed to be painful, but if it is, it usually means something is wrong and we need a way to fix it.
There could be several reasons for breastfeeding to hurt. A newborn might not be able to latch well, or we are unable to position the baby well. And when latching is the problem, the baby becomes more irritable and we get more stressed. It’s a time-taking process that requires learning with patience on our parts. But this entire process leaves us moms totally drained out. Painful breastfeeding is usually down to sore, tender nipples, especially once the milk comes in around two or four days after giving birth. The baby will be feeding every couple of hours, which means the problem can worsen quickly, leaving some moms with cracked, sore, blistered and bleeding nipples.
