First and foremost, the first few weeks of breastfeeding can be painful. If the baby latches on to the nipple properly, the first minute is painful because the nipple and areola are being pulled into the baby’s mouth. After the first minute, the pain should begin to ease. You may need to reposition the baby if the pain continues. If the baby continually latches on incorrectly, the mother can get sore, cracked nipples.
Pain from breastfeeding may be the result of something else known as Mastitis. Mastitis is an infection found in the breast tissue that causes pain, redness and swelling. The majority of lactation mastitis cases occur within the first 12 weeks after birth.
Remember the days and nights when you were nursing, and who wasn't a "story mother"? Even the public figures, which have lost their shine in front of the camera, are just as same as you when it comes to breastfeeding. “I am a host, and it is not easy to walk on the road of breastfeeding. No matter what I do I can't get any relief. It hurts so bad that I'd rather cut my boon off with a dull knife then have this pain I don't know what else to do.”
Breastfeeding can be a wonderful experience for both mother and baby. It provides ideal nourishment and a special bonding experience that many mothers cherish. There is old saying “women are weak, but mothers are strong”. Moms always want to give the best to their babies like breastfeeding. This is also a way to get closer with them and love them.
Good luck to the all great breastfeeding moms.
