Babyhood Basics - Breastfeeding Pain

Breastfeeding can cause painful symptoms, sometimes leading to mastitis. Watch this video to learn about mastitis and what to look out for.

Breastfeeding problems like nipple soreness in the beginning of breastfeeding are very normal. In this video, Lactation Consultant Melissa Nagin sits with Mommy Haoua and Baby Jake to discuss the kinds of breastfeeding pain you may be experiencing in the first weeks of breastfeeding. If your nipples are sore, Nagin advises soaking them in salt water followed by applying lanolin cream. Other common problems include engorgement and plugged ducts. Mastitis is a dangerous infection that should be treated immediately. Remember if you are in lots of pain or see blood, contact your doctor right away.
