Who's breasts are these... and some other breast feeding questions.

If there is one thing I forgot about after giving birth to my daughter is the pain and the feeling of milk coming in to breast feed.  Today my milk came in and I have so much I had to pump before feeding baby because otherwise my breasts were too big for him to latch onto.  So I have fed Titus 10 times already today but I also have pumped 5ounces!  WOW... talk about a lot of milk!!!   It is painful but thankfully I am already on pain killers from surgery.

I also had a friend buy me soothies (gel pads) and I have had some relief from them.  I did get a couple tiny cracks on the nipples from poor latch ons, but I have been using the Medela tender lanolin care cream and also using my own breast milk to help heal them.

Have any of you mom's ever had your nipples bleed?  What did you do to eliminate pain from breast feeding?

My nurse tonight told me to use tea bags for relief to.  So I think tomorrow when I get home I will try this new remedy!  :)

I actually got blood blisters on my nipples from a poor latch on! Just keep doing what your doing. Feed on demand, as often as he wants to nurse or eat. Don't limit feedings; that causes nipple soreness and milk supply issues. Air dry your nipples before putting bra back on or over your npples. Coat them in lanolin!! Wear breast pads!! And remember how great breastmilk and breastfeeding is for Titus, and that in a few days or a week, you will be pain free!!
First of all CONGRATULATIONS!! I haven't seen the update on the birth of your little guy, so incredibly happy for you.

I actually did have this happen to me and my nurse told me to put neosporin on AFTER I fed DD so that it could work some of it's healing magic. Then before I fed again, I would give them a cleaning, feed, and reapply the neosporin. It worked for me : ) Good luck mama. Being a mom is hard work but so worth it!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
