I posted about this on the breastfeeding board but got few responses, also I am not sure if it is from BFing.   I've been stressing myself out by worrying about one of my nipples. I'm still BFing DS (15 months old) but only at night (we cosleep). My right is his "preferred" one. Well last week I noticed when he latched it REALLY hurt (only on my right side) but I figured it was his teeth (he's teething and has bit me once or twice). A few days later I looked and saw...
Thanks Patiogardener!! I wish I could post a pic but don't wanna be flagged for pornography.   The crack has gone away, I've been using lansiloh since yesterday. No more dryness but pink, inflamed area still there. Doesn't itch or hurt. No discharge or anything. I decided not to use the nystatin b/c I'm not convinced it is thrush and I won't be able to nurse from that side if I use it (they didn't prescribe me the oral nystatin but the cream which baby can't ingest)....
I found something on Pagets disease in this scientific article http://dermatologycentral.typepad.com/files/nipple-and-areolar-eczema-i.pdf, at the top of page 3 it says it would be a rare event in a breastfeeding mother and has not been reported in literature.... do you think I can rule this out then, for the most part? It also says the average age is 50 (although I know many women get breast cancer in their 20s and 30s).   I keep checking it all day and it's...
Hi Patiogardener!! What did your sore nipple look like, can you describe it? I mean was it like mine? Thanks!
Thanks for replying, motherhendoula!! Was your irritation only on one side of your nipple? Mine is just on the underside, although it is a tiny bit flaky on the top as well. The red/pink puffiness is only on the underside and it has spread a tiny bit onto the areola. And also, I only have 1 nipple affected- that's what also has me worried.   The affected area is shiny, pink, has that peeling, white-ish skin. I had stabbing pains when DS nursed for a few days in a...
Ok I know I sound mental but I'm back to thinking it might be thrush. I didn't let DS nurse on the right side at all last night but this morning the right side was leaking and breast was engorged and uncomfortable so I let him nurse. Didn't hurt this time. But noticed afterwards nipple was dry and flaky looking, with peeling skin. It's just on the right side. Idk what to think anymore but I'm back to being scared...hope some experts can weigh in!!   Thanks!!
Ok I feel like a total idiot but I *think* I may have figured it out! I fell asleep next to DS2 after getting home and when I woke up my nipple was hurting and saw that my bra had "caught" right under my nipple, where it is swollen and irritated. Then I thought about it and realized that's where my bra ALWAYS "catches", every single day (I think I need a new bra!). I just looked and the crease of my nipple right where the bra catches has split open, like a large crack....
So I am still BFing my 15-month-old but only at night. If you've read my other thread (lol) you know he HAS to nurse alllll night long. A few days ago I noticed when he latches it HURTS! Something that hasn't happened since he was a newborn.   I thought it was just his teeth until I looked today and saw my right nipple (the one that hurts) is all inflamed, pink and raw looking. My other one is fine. My first thought was maybe it was an infection. Then I thought...
Ugh sorry!!!! I am getting the "pinchy" latch too!! Things are still exactly the same grrr
Thanks GuavaGirl!! I've never tried a paci with him, I didn't know if he was too "old" to introduce one but the thought did cross my mind! And yeah he is def teething AND I found out almost 2 weeks ago he had a double ear infection so just got off antibiotics. I don't know what to do about cosleeping since I have nowhere to put him right now (long story but my middle son has autism and sleep issues and can't a share a room with either brother). I've thought about putting...
