My girlfriend has only breast fed our newborne for 2 days. She has one inverted nipple so she has only been able to breast feed from the other. We are going to the pediatrician tomorrow but the boob she is unable to use is hurting her pretty bad tonight. Should we care for this tonight? If so how?

Well you have probably been to the ped. already, but have you seen a lactaction consultant? Our ped. has one on staff and it was very helpful. Especially the first few weeks. If they don't have one, check the place she gave birth, they might have one there or a resource for one. You can also look into the le Leche leauge online for a local chapter where you live.

Don't give up. After the first few weeks it is so much easier. At 7 mo. my lo is a pro and has been for months. I am so glad I perservered.
