Hello ma'am, I am a breastfeed mom and I am having pain while feeding g. What should I do?



Hey new mom, this can happen several times. Dont worry. Check on the latch of the baby also understand that position of the baby is proper. When babies are latched on wrong, it can hurt or feel like a pinch each time your baby sucks. Over time, this can lead to painful, sore, cracked nipples. If you have pain during breastfeeding, talk to your doctor or lactation consultant to make sure your baby is properly latched or that something else isn't going on. Try mand maasage your breast as well.

Dont worry. make sure your baby is latching properly. Try feeding from both sided to avoid excess pain on just one side. To manage the pain massage the breast gently, use hot or cold compressions, take a warm shower to soothe it.
