Okay so I am ready to cry. I tried so hard with my dd to bf and after 3 weeks I had mastitis and the antibotics that my dr put me on he told me I could no bf... that was it I could do it no longer. So when I got pregnant a second time I was determined to bf for at least 6 months.... well here I am at 2 months and I have a yeast infection, my son has thrush, and my nipples are so cracked that they are bleeding.
Now I am thinking that I am going to have to give up again. My breast are actually bleeding bad enough that my ds is throwing up blood and that scared me. My Dr has me pumping for tonight so that she can see haw bad the blood is.... My problem is that when I pump, there is no blood, I only bleed when my son sucks. Do you think this is a latch on problem?
I want so bad to keep bf but it hurts so badly and he seems to not be getting enough. I hope I can find some help.... I don't want to give up but I have yet to have a feeding session that has not hurt me in some way.... except the very first one in the hospital.
I would go to a lactation consultant but there are hardly any in my area and the ones that are are still an hour away.
