    My Nipples hurt
    tiale posted:
    So I had my son Feb 1, 2015. I breastfed him and I am currently breastfeeding him, but for some reason, He will breastfeed and fall asleep. I wont produce no milk for 4-5 hours. when my son gets up to eat, it isn't enough breast milk so I have to make him a bottle. my concern is that and also my nipples hurt so bad. He use to latch on perfectly, now he just latches on to the nipple and I keep trying to have him latch on correctly but No luck. My boobs around y areola and nipples itch so bad, also my nipples feel like they are burning, itches and hurts so much. what do I need to do?? should I stop breastfeeding my son??? please HELP ME SOMEONE, ANYONE PLEASE

    I hope you have this issue resolved! and that it didnt end your bf experience. I sounds like a yeast infection to me? probably should see your doctor to get a script. rub a little milk on them when done nursing, and try to let them air dry as much as possible. change nursing pads often! good luck!
