So I had my baby Monday, and have been BF him. I've become really sore. I spoke with the lactation consultant before leaving the hospital, and she told me to use the soothing gel pads, and the ointment (which I have). She says it should get better. I am just wondering how common this is. Was anyone else really sore? What did you do to sooth? Did it get better? I am almost dreading feeding times for how much it hurts to put him on my breast.

What kind of sore? The gel pads and the Lansinoh can make you sore.
It souldn't hurt. You don't want to listen to people that were sore. I was never sore and nursed 3 babies for a total of 10 years! Nipples don't toughen up with breastfeeding. How would they? A baby's mouth is wet and suckling wouldn't make nipples tough. What does tough nipples mean?
Abnormal sucking causes sore nipples. Giving bottles or pacifiers can cause abnormal sucking and can lead to that's one reason a woman might have sore nipples for 10 months.
