Hi I have been exclusively BFing since my baby was 5 weeks old (yeah it took that long for us to get going) the baby is doing well, weighed 17.8lbs yesterday @ six mos old.
My issue is that I have what you can call is a constantly erect nipple (one side only). This condition started after I had a blocked milk duct and since then on this side the nipple seems to be very sensitive and is mostly erect. Problem with that is that besides being quite sore 'n itchy, it is not possible for me to wear a bra becoz it bends and makes wearing a bra quite uncomfy. The skin attaching the nipple to the areola is also getting all cut and tender....(sorry if I am grossing you out)
Please tell me if anyone is encountering similar issues...I'll appreciate the advise.
