    Default Breastfeeding while pregnant

    I'm currently 21 weeks with number 3 and still feeding DD who is almost 1 four times a day.
    I'm not looking at weaning at all so that's not an option but my nipples are sooooooooooooooo painful.
    Has anyone had this? It's been since 16 weeks.
    Any tips??

    Once i got pregnant with this one i had to wean my daughter as it was just too painful. She was only on 1 feed a day then. Have you tried nipple creams at all?

    I fed through 2 pregnancies and have also tandem fed twice. (Still am feeding DD2&DS1) yes I had it and it's totally normal. When pregnant with my second it was worse from about 20-24 weeks and that's when my supply was at its lowest. With my DS pregancy my nipples were sore on and off throughout and especially towards the end. I basically just pushed through it

    My DS was 18 months when I fell pregnant with DD. He was (still is) pretty attached to his BF, and didn't want to let them go. He was only having 2 a day, and I had time limits on them. He had 10 minutes before his nap and 20 before bed. I cut the bed feed back to 15 minutes because it was just so painful. I had to grit my teeth for every single feed. But, as soon as she was out, feeding wasn't painful any more! No tips, sorry. But at least you know it won't last forever.

    This is me now.
    I'm totally just pushing through it.
    If it's worse between 20-24 weeks maybe I'm in the middle of it and it will get better! Fingers crossed!!
