My little one is 5 days old and I just had to vent...OUCH! I love our time together feeding and I wouldn't stop unless I was told that I had to medically, but my boobs hurt so bad these days. Both of them have developed little sores so when he feeds it stings, but he is latched on properly. He eats non-stop it seems. At the hospital he ate for 24 hours straight...just one boob to the next. Now he's eating about every hour which is good cuz he has jaundice and needs to eat as often as possible. I have the boob cream and 2nd skin(the burn patch things) they are awesome, but when he first latches on I grit my teeth together it hurts so bad. It does get better but with the sores it still hurts a little...he's a strong sucker too. Anyway, I know it will go away. I'm not changing anything. I love him and I love the experience (and the non stinky diapers) but just needed to vent.
