    Do look further into the TT thing. DS2 had a posterior TT and a lip tie and they can be tricky to diagnose. Seeing a paed with an ultrasound as suggested by dyso is a great idea.

    Did things get much better with addressing the lip and tongue tie in your son?

    For me? Yeah they did. Slightly different circumstances because he was my third bub (I'd breastfed the first and second for ten months and nearly three years respectively) but my first prem, a 31 weeker. Initially I thought our feeding issues were simply that he was tiny, my nipples were huge, he tired easily, he was tube fed ebm etc... but I kept saying it felt wrong and the nurses (some LC's some not) and all said no TT, just prem issues. I mentioned it to the pead and with one good look he said posterior TT and upper lip tie - both snipped. The TT was actually snipped again because it was so severe and it did help. He just turned two and is still breastfed. He's always had a lazy latch but it's not painful.

    You really are doing an amazing job

    Have you ruled out a staph infection?

    Thank you Miss Kitty.

    No I'm not sure about staph infection. What are the signs? Nothing looks infected. And it hurts during feeds, not in between like with thrush.

    I was still having horrid nipple pain at 12 weeks. I have nips of steel now though, that my dd is 1! I think some women just have more sensitive nipples, and there is not anything you can do about it except grin and bare it. I know you have ruled out tongue tie, what about upper lip tie? I had excruciating pain feeding my oldest DD, and only recently found out she has an upper lip tie that needs snipping.

    I know how you feel, I used nipple shields for every feed and in between when it was too painful I expressed and gave DS a bottle. This lasted for the first 4.5 months until I finally tried feeding without the shields! They were causing me issues.

    I'm not sure if this is the Same in your case?

    Have you tried hydrogel breast discs? They were a lifesaver for me.

    Hope it gets better for you, I don't have much advice. Could you express a few feeds to help your nipples heal
    A bit?

    Thank you for the stories. Somehow it makes me feel better knowing it's not just me.
    I will try and find a practitioner re: TT and lip tie.
    I wish she would take the nipple shield but she's refusing it! I'm gonna leave it a week and try to reintroduce it hoping she will have forgotten what it is!
