What are the Breast-feeding difficulties ?

There are several difficulties that they may encounter. Some of the most common breastfeeding difficulties include:

  1. Latching problems: This is one of the most common difficulties. The baby may have difficulty latching onto the breast properly, which can lead to sore nipples and low milk supply.

  2. Painful nipples: Breastfeeding can cause sore, cracked, or bleeding nipples, which can make it difficult to continue breastfeeding.

  3. Engorgement: When the breasts become too full of milk, they can become engorged, which can be uncomfortable and make it difficult for the baby to latch properly.

  4. Mastitis: This is an infection of the breast tissue that can cause flu-like symptoms and make breastfeeding painful.

  5. Low milk supply: Some mothers may struggle with producing enough milk to meet their baby's needs, which can lead to supplementing with formula.

  6. Oversupply: On the other hand, some mothers may produce too much milk, which can cause discomfort, engorgement, and make it difficult for the baby to latch.
