I took me 7 weeks to not feel absolutely toe-curling, tear-wrenching pain each time DD nursed. We went on to very successfully nurse for 2 years. Now I'm expecting baby #2 in October and I'm just wondering if I am going to have to go through this pain again. I have the confidence this time to know that indeed I can nurse and very much enjoyed it after the initial period. But already my nipples are really sore and I am just wondering if I'm going to have to go through the initial pain again. I was treated for yeast last time but don't think I ever really had it or anything else "wrong" per se. DD had a weak latch at first and I got some bad advice that her latch was fine when we were in the hospital and I think that did some initial damage, but then we both just had to practice at it. Anyway, just wondering what I'm in for this time. For mamas who have had more than one babe and substantial pain or difficulty the first time, was it better the second time around or just as bad?
