Some good breastfeeding tips from some great Lactation Consultants!
Shared from IBCI Anna Burch @ibclc.anna
" One of the biggest myths of breastfeeding is that its normal for it to be painful. I like to say it’s “normal” be a little tender and sensitive in the beginning, but should not hurt or be painful. If it is, there is likely something that needs to be tweaked or assessed."
Some reasons why nursing might be painful and working with a Lactation Consultant immediately can help fix it:
- -shallow latch
- -not breaking baby’s suction when removing from the breast
- -improper use and fit of a breast pump
- -personal hygiene practices
- -Raynauds phenomenon -breast or skin infections
- -nipple blend
