My baby is 5 days old and breastfeeding. At first I had trouble positioning him and latching but now we are pretty good at it. Last night however I've noticed I have hard lumps in my breasts and sometimes I get a shooting pain in my nipples. I especially get the shooting/stabbing pain when I am cold. Anyone know what causes that and if it's something I should be concerned about?
I talked to my friend who happenes to be an IBCLC. I didn't even think to mention being cold when it happens, just the pain. First thing she reccommended was to put a blanket around me and to get warm.Worked like a charm.
