Common Problems of Breastfeeding

Sore nipples, low milk supply, clogged ducts, and mastitis are common problems of breastfeeding. Jacquelyn Garcia, Lactation Nurse with the Center for Women and Infants at South Miami Hospital, says sore nipples come with poor latching, because they are a sensitive area and it takes some time to get the milk through. She also explains if you are not breastfeeding frequently or putting your baby on to the breast enough, that is going to cause clogged ducts, leading to mastitis.
