BREASTFEEDING WILL NEVER HURT
If breastfeeding is hurting – something is wrong! While it’s not supposed to hurt, an incorrect latch or a nipple that has thrush can cause great discomfort. Often when a latch is correct, it may be that the mother is getting used to the feeling of the baby suckling from her breast. Let down in the early days can also be uncomfortable. A visit with a lactation specialist or the clinic can sort the problem quickly. Education is key! Be sure to take a breastfeeding class while you are still pregnant.
