You can do it!: Just remember women have been breastfeeding for millions of years! You want to get the tip of your nipple in the back of the baby's mouth, so he can compress your milk ducts adequately. Make sure he opens wide before you bring him in to the breast. A slight pinch at the beginning of feeding is ok, if a feeding is persistently painful stop and reposition. Get help with a lactation specialist ...Read more

I am breastfeeding my fourth child and i keep getting mastitis. I have breastfed all of my children and never had this before. What is causing this?
I do not know: That is unfortunate for you. At times, we can never tell why things happen. We can do all in our power to try and prevent it though. Make sure your breasts and nipples stay clean as does your infants mouth, and that will decrease any issues. If you pump, make sure the pump is cleaned regularly. And don't let your breasts get too engorged so pumping may actually be required. Best wishes. ...Read more
