Breast-feeding pain and infection healed

With my first daughter, Jacqueline, nursing was a bit painful early on, but we eventually got into a good rhythm and I nursed her comfortably for over a year. Minutes after my second daughter, Lindsey, was born about six months ago, I began to nurse her. I continued breastfeeding her for the first few days, but it became increasingly painful.

At times the pain was so severe that I felt on the verge of passing out. My entire body would react, and for hours afterward I would be feverish and bedridden. While recovering from these reactions, I couldn't nurse, and then I worried that my milk supply would dry up. Keeping Lindsey adequately fed was constantly on my mind. I didn't want to nurse her because of nutritional concerns, but because breast-feeding is so convenient and natural.
