it suddenly hurts to breast feed!!!! need help or advice, i dont know what to do!
my son is 2 months old and we haven't had any problems breastfeeding until a few days ago. as far as i can tell nothing has changed, he isn't cutting teeth or anything! but it hurts so bad to feed him now. at first i thought that maybe they were just sore or something. i have been using lanolin lanolina and it helps a little but my right boob still hurts like hell when he latches on.. kinda feels like it did when we first started out and i don't know why but i also think there is a sore spot on it too. like maybe he has been sucking on it too hard? i have tried pumping and it helps a little but i cant do it forever... not with how busy and crazy my life has been lately. so been pumping the right breast, feeding him with the left one... which doesn't hurt and trying to figure out some way to make this work.
i monitor how much formula i give him and when... he normally only gets between one/ two 3 oz bottles right now. and i want to keep it that way, he has reacted badly when i give him more then that. large diaper blow outs and gas along with getting really fussy... so i really don't want to stop breastfeeding, but i don't know why it hurts now.
has this happened to anyone, and if so what helped? how long did it go one for?
