So, my little one was born on August 5th via a c-section.
You've already received a ton of great advice and I just wanted to share a link with you to the Breastfeeding Support: Ask the Lactation Consultant board here on iVillage. The board is another great place to find information and support from other knowledgeable mamas!
doctor suggested ice packs and they really helped.
Thank you ladies for all the great advice.
After you've BF, rub some of your BM around your nipples and let it air dry. It sounds crazy but the antibodies in BM will help your nipples heal faster. A LC suggested it with DD and it really works!
Mine is pretty bad right now.
