  • honestly its either dry yourself up and formula feed or suffer through the contraction pain and breastfeed your baby. The pain should go away in a few days its just your bodies way of shrinking down your uterus again i know it hurts but i also know what it feels like to have super sore breast to.

  • No, you are not crazy to breastfeed through the pain. Good luck!
