Can Breastfeeding While Pregnant Is Accompanied By Breast Pain?
At noon, I am 2 months pregnant and breastfeeding also my first child aged 18 months when breastfeeding often sore nipples Can I continue to breastfeed or not?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nipple pain that you experience can occur due to various things, including because of a bacterial infection of the skin around the nipple, it could be due to a wound caused by a baby bite, it could also be due to a blockage in the breast milk glands, or simply due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. To ensure this, it is not possible if there is no direct examination.
So our advice, check yourself with your obstetrician, as well as you can control your pregnancy. Convey your complaint and the doctor will assess which of the possibilities we mentioned above best represent your condition and what is the best treatment.
Meanwhile, even in terms of the baby itself, it is not a problem to continue breastfeeding, but in terms of you, if you already feel pain, torment, breast feels hard, redness and various other symptoms especially until bleeding and discharge comes out other than breast milk, you should first stop the breastfeeding process and let your child get his nutrition from other sources, remembering that he is also 18 months old and breast milk is no longer his main food. Compress your breasts with warm compresses, wear comfortable breasts, do not touch the nipples first, and do not take any medication without doctor's advice. So, hopefully answering your question.
