Omigosh, I'm STILL so sore!! And my baby's nearly 6 weeks old! For me, there was the soreness from pushing for 8 hours and then the soreness from the c-section. My neck, my shoulders, my arms. My lower back where I got the spinal aches all of the time. My lower abdomen where my scar is is still achy.
Now, it's all-body soreness from holding/wearing a baby 12+ hours every day. She still won't let anyone else hold her. I have got to learn how to comfortably use a sling on my right shoulder as my left shoulder/neck needs a break! I love my wraps, but I can't nurse in them easily.
Dh is pretty anti-chiropractor, but even he said yesterday that he thinks I need to go! Now just to find one who will let me hold my baby the entire time because she won't go to anyone else.
Sorry, HAM, didn't mean to hijack your thread. I'm just so right there with you! Thankfully, my nipple soreness has gone away. Kltroy's exactly right - if the pain goes away after a few sucks, you're probably doing okay. Just try to change position every time you nurse (from cradle to football to laying down, back to cradle, etc). This will help a lot!
