The Mommyz Love article stresses the importance of establishing good breastfeeding practices. Breastfeeding pains are usually associated with improper latching, not getting to completely drain out the milk, and poor hygiene when breastfeeding. Through a good latch, the right techniques, and pain relieving products, these breastfeeding discomforts can be solved.
Breastfeeding is a natural biological process and discomforts at the beginning of a mother’s nursing journey are not uncommon. Over time, mothers should expect breastfeeding to come with ease and no pain at all. Any persisting breast or nipple pain may become a sign of an underlying breastfeeding problem, resulting in low breast milk supply.
Mommyz Love co-founder, Stephanie Murillo, shared her breastfeeding struggles. Stephanie relates, “The first time I latched Samuel on it was so painful for me, I really had no clue what I was doing. I knew so much about breastfeeding but at the same time, I didn’t know how to get started. It was really disappointing for me and even worse, was the cracking and bleeding that came after from not latching him properly. I realized then how important it is to really educate yourself and make a breastfeeding plan that works for you and your baby.”
Breastfeeding pains that are left untreated can lead to more serious infections like mastitis or breast abscesses. Mommyz Love recommends getting help through breastfeeding support groups and certified lactation consultants.
