dangit!! I wish yall would stop saying that!!! I always get this mental picture of a set of ta-tas with thimbles in place of the nipples!!!

I will be happy if Kalyssa will get rid of this darn thrush so my boobies will feel better. This hurts and my nipples are so sore like they are during that first week of bfing. I am really considering quitting. Maybe if I boil my bras and everything else that comes in contact with my b**bs or her mouth in water and vinegar it will work. I really want to keep bfing but I just dont have the intestinal fortitude that some of yall ladies have.

LOL.
Lilsteph: My baby is using his tongue during breastfeeding, the way he would with a bottle, so I am sore and have blisters now because he has n****e confusion. So I'm not sure about what to do for biting, but if anyone breast and bottle feeds, and find you are getting sore, read this:

and hereis the post I wrote about it:

This may also help train your 'confused' baby:



Try this advice I got from a LaLeche advisor to encourage him to use his tongue correctly when breastfeeding:



(From the Breastfeeding Answerbook) Walking back on the tongue: before putting baby to the breast, brush baby's lips a few times to encourage him to open his mouth. Insert a clean finger (fingernail trimmed) pad side down, on the tip of baby's tongue and count slowly to three before releasing the pressure.
*Release the pressure, keeping the finger in baby's mouth and move back a little farther on his tongue, pressing again to a count of three.
*Move back on the tongue one or two more times.
*Try to avoid gagging baby. If baby does gag, notice how far back in the baby's mouth the finger was and avoid putting it that far back the next time.
*Repeat the entire "tongue walk" three or four times before each nursing.



Or try this if the other does not encourage Nikolas to keep his tongue down as he latches.
Put a clean upturned index finger into baby's mouth with the fingernail side pressing gently on baby's tongue.
*leave finger in that position for about thirty seconds while baby sucks on it.
*Turn the finger over slowly so that the finger pad is on the baby's tongue and push down on his tongue while gradually pulling the finger out of his mouth.
*Repeat this exercise several times before latching baby onto the breast.

So heres my thing. The end of one of my nipples, part of it is purple. Like a hickey. It doesn't really hurt. I know he doesn't open up his mouth wide enough, and he doesn't latch the best, but when I saw the lactation consultant she said he was doing good.
Sometimes I get shooting pains too. It doesn't happen very often though.
