Good idea... you never know. How long has it been, I think by the 3rd week, I was in the clear. The only time it hurt was when my milk was coming down, and that pretty much never went away the whole time I nursed, I just got used to it, as it only hurt for a second. But good luck with your Ob today... hopefully they'll tell you something good. :)
Just a quick note to say hi! saw your post about breast feeding! it does get better! It will take time and practice! My LC told me not to use the nipple shields for long as it can restrict the amount of milk you produce, good luck
breastfeeding is not easy at first... it freakin' HURTS!!! I know, but I can promise you this, it will get better. Mine got so chapped and even got scabs on them (eeww!!) It was painful to say the least... but it does pass. You need to get some nipple cream, that stuff is wonderful and it wont hurt your baby if he ingests a little!! Get some, it works!!
