October 16, 2009, Newsletter Issue #135: Pain and Breastfeeding

Tip of the Week

There are no statistics available that provide an actual number of women who quit breastfeeding because of pain. Breastfeeding can be challenging especially in the beginning. However, with effort and support mothers can face those challenges and continue to breastfeed.

The key is to understand the reasons for the pain. Breastfeeding should not hurt. The baby may not be latched on properly or the mother's breasts may be engorged.

There are lactation consultants available who can provide helpful information and support.
