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.

I think others have said that keeping their upper body warmer while nursing helps.

Look up vasospasms on kellymom.com. Should be some helpful information there. Do you have Reynauds symptoms in your hands and feet as well?

You could wear a hoodie or something that opens in front over the tank.

I wore a nursing tank under a long sleeve shirt... tank flap down, shirt up, baby on, so I had no exposed skin. Staying warm and taking a multivitamin helps considerably. Nifedipine has some extremely annoying side effects. When I had to take it during preterm labor for 2 months I was fantasizibg about the day I could stop. :-/ Try to deal with your raynauds in every other possible way before resorting to meds.

2 shirt method works really well, like you would use for nip. I used it 24/7 for 3 years.

1 mom liked this
Nursing tanks help a bunch. And keep the tank tucked in. That helps you stay warm too.

I wore button down pj tops at home & only unbuttoned one or two, leaving the top one buttoned, popped open the nursing tank and nursed thru the opening. I would also wear a robe or a warm blanket around us.

When out and about I'd nurse wearing baby using the 2 shirt method. The warmth from baby & wrap helped.
