Ds is six months old. For the past two odd weeks I have been having issues with attachment on the right side. It is progressively getting worse.
But its not my nipple that is sore it is the area around it. I feed him under the arm, as on the right I have never been able to get him attached any other way.
It is getting to the point that I am dreading feeding on that side and as such feed off the left more often but am worried this will cause issues with mastitis.
I use hydrogel discs and have been putting paw paw on but nothing is working. When I had cracked nipples these both worked a treat.
The area around the nipple is bright pink and very tender to touch.
I did think of thrush but would have thought both nipples and baby would be affected.
I fed dd with nipple Shields till twelve months and have fought not to use them with this bub even through issues with being prem and pumping etc.
I would love to feed till twelve months but the pain is starting to get to me.
Any help would be great.
