  • Damn...I am a damn fool for stopping. I didn't hurt, he ate fine....why was I so stupid. I apparently had it better than 99% of breastfeeding women out there and was too undereducated to know.

  • Mine never did hurt in the whole month I breastfed, so, I assume they would have continued to not hurt. Maybe babies latch is off a little.

  • Mine killed in the beginning. I think it was around 3-4 weeks before they felt fine.

  • There is a cream you can get. I forgot the name of it. It helped me lots. Ask either a lactation consultant or a pharmacist. Forgot to mention that. Sorry.

  • I don't even remember it hurting that bad. I had a lactation consultant & she walked me through it step by step & it didn't really hurt. It felt weird, but not painful.
