My son is 7 days old and my boobs are in bad shape. I know it's because he's not latching on right, but when I saw the lactation specialist she said everything looked good. I've been pumping for the last couple of days hoping they will toughen up. I have been using Lanolin (sp?) and cooling pads. How did you get through the pain?Answer Question

I just learned to grin and bear it... I was never able to pump - not once, it just never worked. I would say call your lactation consultant, WIC or La Leche and get some support... I would also recommend you ditch the Lanolosh. That is only good for keeping them from chapping, once they are chapped, cracked or bleeding it does NOTHING. Instead, take a run to Babys R Us or another store where they sell BosomBuddies... (You can check for local stores online - HERE) It's all natural and will help you to heal rather than simply get worse.
