Been getting her to latch on perfectly but my nipples stil come out white. It is extreemly painfull while nursing and even more so as the milk lets down during the feeding. Most of the time in my left but it does happen time to time in my right. Right before the end of the feeding they will feel suddenly like I left ice on them too long. About 10 or so minutes after nursing my nipples will suddenly get really warm n red sometimes a little blue. I have been reading on rauynads and they say evening primrose oil helps and vit b6. There is also a script you can get of blood pressure meds to help. I am going to try the evening prim but if it doesnt ease it atleast some how do I bring this up to my doc without her just treating me for thrush? I have considered a nipple shield but I see maybe 1 good reveiw out of 12 so im going to do everything I can to just do it the way god intended.
