Sore and Tender Breast!???

Naomi - posted on 12/27/2010 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hello!! I am nursing my 6 month old, and all of the sudden my left breast is tender/sore to the touch/ and it's hurting to nurse:( I have no idea why! I have been massaging it and trying to empty it out after my little one nurses on it. Any advice, personal experience?? If it is still hurting in a couple days I plan to go to the doctor, but I am trying to wait and see if I can find the problem. Thank you in advance!

Try taking some evening primrose oil. Its an herbal supplement and has no adverse effects on you or baby. It is most commonly used to treat breast tenderness in cancer patients. I take it a few times a week and it really helps me.
