Crawling Sensation On Skin While Breastfeeding

It would depend on what the infection is from, how bad is it, where exactly on the breast is the infection, is the infection partly treated and no longer contagious because it is partly treated but the mom is not yet fully recovered. Best bet is to get the opinion of a breatfeeding friendly dr. ...Read more

I am breastfeeding my son and I have fallen asleep with his head resting on my arms. I wake up with arm hurting. Am I doing long term damage to arms?
Unlikely: Unless you have some sort of pre-existing nerve damage, it would be highly unlikely for a baby's head just resting against your arms to cause any permanent damage. Think of it as your leg falling asleep. Some sort of compression lead your nerve to tell you that something is wrong, so that means you should not leave your baby's head there for too long, but your body is giving you a sign. ...Read more

Post mastitis and huge blisters, how do I heal this patch of dead skin on my nipple? Breastfeeding.
Needs evaluation: "blisters" and "dead skin" on a breast after mastitis sounds like a problem. A primary care doctor can evaluate it to see if further treatment is needed, or perhaps the previously inflamed skin is now drying up and will eventually peel away, leaving new skin. The breast can be examined now and then again later, to be sure the breast returns to normal, and there is not another medical problem. ...Read more
