BREAST­FEED­ING WILL NEVER HURT

Your Pregnancy - - Pregnancy Files -

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.
