  • that happened to me right before my milk really came in. during the first week. then after the milk came in it was alot easier. i was in so much pain that i had stopped breast feeding fully because it was so painful. so she got formula and she still gets breast milk but i totally understand. hang in there. it truely does get better.

  • Not 100% sure, but it sounds like let down. If it is, it should ease after some time. Just know that you're doing what's best for your baby. Stick it out, because it gets easier.

  • I agree it sounds like let down. I used to cringe when my baby started feeding. It does "toughen" up after a while, and the pain eases.

  • It sounds like let down. if baby is really young and still learning to latch that could be part of the issue. I would suggest pumping a little bit before feeding baby to make your breast softer and easier for baby to latch on.

  • It sounds like let down or possibly thrush. It is hard to understand your post, but if the babe is under 6 weeks old then it may just be engorgement and let down. It does get better, but I would not recommend pumping because this will signal the body to make more milk and keep you engorged longer.
