Hi my name is Christina I just gave birth to my second son saturday and we are exclusivly breastfeeding.. I didn't get this chance with my first son so this is all new and challenging for me but its good for mommy and baby..
My son latched wrong one day and even thou he wasn't on for long he drew blood.. wheni pump it doesn't bother me but if he feeds from it he breaks the scab and drinks blood.. Enough one night that it made him throw up .. and i didn't even know I was bleeding till he threw upand then i checked my bra and saw the blood on my pad
whats best to help this to heal quickly? I've been using a Breast SHield over to help and mainly pumping from it.. and feeding with the other side.. my other side however is flat and inverted so i have to use the shield for him to latch.View Thread
yea lanolin and the medela version of it.. which i think i like better..
I bought some Brest Shells to use after pumping they are hard plastic with airholes and hold the bra away from the skin to let them air out it even has an attachment for a flat nipped to help draw it out can't wear them all the time but those seemed to help[.. I'vebeen feeding him from the bleeding nipple the last couple of days without the shield still hurts but isn't bleeding...View Thread
