yesterday when i was trying to breast feed my 27 days old baby she bites it too hardly that my left side nipple got hurt badly , why she did it ?
in general my baby is on ff as the breast milk is not sufficiently coming out but every day i tried to bf her to increase the supply

Nimisha Mistry

Its normal... May b brest milk supply wld nt b ok for yr baby

Sheeba Vijesh

hey tutun, 3 weeks baby can't bite so hard that it hurts, its the latching position problem.. do consult a lactation specialist...

My baby tends to do the same.  She didn't  do it on purpose.. She's just trying you latch on firmly and is a keen feeder.  Try using nipple shield - pigeon  brand is good.  I use it regularly

Ankita Mitra

thanks sheeba , ank m , and nimisha

Pooja amit Deshwal

Shyama Santhosh

Yes its important to consult lactation specialist. he can help you. Dont worry this happens as baby is learning so is u.

Ankita Mitra

thank u shyama and pooja

Ankita Mitra

will surely consult laction specialist

Sheeba Vijesh

hey moms, those who use nipple shield, you should try to not use it regularly and try giving without it... otherwise it will become habit for baby... just a friendly advice... take care...

I completely agree with Sheeba. Change the position of feeding.
