using a breast shield to breast feed

by Preeti
(Patna, Bihar, India)

I'm currently using a breast shield to breast feed my 1 week old baby.

He could not express milk from the breast directly and hence i had to use the breast shield. after using it for 2 days, i noticed bleeding on my left breast nipple (baby uses it more than the right one
).

I also use a breast pump to express out milk but that is not causing any affect ( i presume....). my nipples hurt and i am really getting frustrated with all these. kindly suggest a solution. Thanks.

Bleeding nipples causes
by: Lezel

I would like to suggest a reading on common bleeding nipple causes and solutions on the breastfeeding-problems.com website.

There you might find the relative help to find out what could be the cause behind your nipples bleeding.

While I know breast pumps and dry nipples can be a cause of it, there might also be an infection that's to blame. I am not sure of the shield's role in cases of bleeding, but from reading your comment, it could be the frequently nursing on one side more than the other with the shield.

I hope you find some relief soon. Good luck momma.
