Arrrghh....I'd rather go through childbirth again
Ok, so we've gotten to 4 wks of nursing, after the many, MANY hurdles. Our latch is coming along ok. Not perfect, but getting there. Now we've got a new problem. After a week of taking meds for what we thought was mastitis & its not going away, that was ruled out & I've got a yeast infection in my breasts. Wish it was mastitis because that probably would have been easier to treat with some pills & probably not as painful. It feels like my boobies are sitting over an open flame after I nurse. The pain has gotten to the point that I'm no longer cursing but crying, which is sad. I tried to describe it to DH & the best analogy I came up with is being branded with a hot iron on the chest then bring stabbed with a bunch of tiny knives. Yeah I'd rather go through natural childbirth again because at least that ended. I'm now having to apply antifungal cream which I really don't like because I have to make sure there's no remnants before she feeds. And I'm sitting in the sun with my boobies exposed because I read sunlight's good too. How fun.....okay vent over.
