I have been nursing Mack for 14 weeks now. Just recently it has begun to hurt! I am so bummed out. The only thing I can think of is that when I am nursing her in bed at night (in the dark) she isn't latching properly. So, great...now how am I going to get any sleep?
Last night I fed her in the living room (1:30) so I could watch her latch. I rocked her to sleep and placed her in the crib (2:30) she woke up right away. I took her back into the living room so I could avoid nursing in bed and rocked her again. I put her back in her crib (3:00) and got into bed. Neighbors friggin dog barked and she was awake (3:04). Darn. So, I threw her in bed and did my best to get her on the boob properly and it huuuurrrrtt.
I don't think it is thrush. I had her checked last Thursday and she was fine. I don't know what to do. We have a LC at the main hospital here but I have a feeling she'll just say don't nurse her in bed. I find myself wondering if her tiny little mouth had trouble at first and now she has bad habits.
Sorry to whinge. DH is just so not into my complaining because he hasn't a clue. Nipple pain is like no other and it just keeps comin' and comin' every 2 hours.
PS: I nursed Fiona for a year this same way and had no problems at all.
