What No One Tells You About Breastfeeding-MainPhoto

Remember though, just because the first few weeks are painless doesn’t mean you’re not going to be hurting later. With every major growth spurt (about every three months, it seems), Emma would nurse harder, longer, and more frequently which meant a short period of discomfort as I got used to her new demands. Emma has lots of teeth and sometimes gets lazy with her latch, letting her mouth close a bit, and causing me quite a bit of pain as her teeth come down on me. I remind her to keep her mouth open and ask her nicely not to bite and we usually move right past it, thank goodness!
