I think i might be able to produce enough milk if i could handle the pain. My baby is 1 month old. I have breastfed up till now with suppliment of formula. The pain comes after the baby has fed for 17 min. He should feed longer but the pain is too great. so i take him off. The burning is crazy. I got through the normal pains of starting of breastfeeding. the soreness and the tenderness and my nipples even bled this time. got through all that and now they BURN !!!! daughter was fed till she was 1 year no troubles) I know how the baby should latch... and i know to let hem feed all the time he wants, is just the pain is too much. I can only handle it for 30 min each side. more than that and i am in tears. i have used lanolin .. no help. baby is super gassy and cries a lot now that i have had him on straight formula for 2 days. 2 days of no sleep for me. also his bowl movements have slowed to 2 X per day.Answer Question

Thrush which is very treatable, baby probably has it too. Check out that kellymom.com site for help. Also if you contact the doctor they usually phone in a script without a visit. I hope you feel better soon (you will)!
