Breastfeeding is a joyous experience for new mothers. Providing breast milk to infants is the best nutrition a mother can provide. A woman can face certain problems while lactating. The baby might not latch onto the breast while breastfeeding or can fall asleep midway while suckling. In such cases, the baby's nourishment might cease and he might not get the necessary nutrients required for growth. Many times women experience excruciating pain while lactating. In such cases the breasts can get sore and painful.
Symptoms of lactation problems include soreness, plugged ducts, pain during lactation and breast infection. Some women tend to get engorged breasts due to prolonged breastfeeding. Plugged ducts are another complication of breastfeeding which generally arises when the milk doesn't drain properly due to inflammation. Wearing tight bras or trauma to the breast can constrict the milk duct and cause plugged ducts. An infection called mastitis is also encountered by many a mothers. In this condition the area of the breast develops an infection and becomes painful, red and swollen.
It is advisable to contact an obstetric specialist, gynecologist, neonatologist, pediatrician or a lactation consultant if you face immense pain and discomfort while breastfeeding. Usually medications and breast-pumps are prescribed to make lactation easier.
