Hi, ladies. I had a blessedly uneventful nursing relationship with my son, so the issues I've been having with my daughter make me feel like such a newbie...so I'm here for help.
We fixed a latch problem, which is great cause my nipples are healing finally, but now my breast tissue itself is sore, not the nipple or areola, but the breast itself, sore to the touch all over it, like I was engorged, but I'm not engorged at all.
DD is having plenty of wet and poopy diapers so I know she's getting enough; I don't see any signs of thrush in her mouth or any white on my nipple or areola, but could it be the beginnings of thrush maybe? The overall soreness as a precursor?
They're not hot or red, there's no streaking or hard spots that would be a plugged duct as far as I can tell. They're soft (DD JUST ate
- nak), but they're very sore - like so sore I don't even want older DS to hug me
. I can't figure out anything else that would be making my breast tissue itself sore, but no other symptoms.
