  1. Apparently it should, my first gave me pain because I was engorged and he being hungry (greedy) would grab (latch on) with gusto. The pressure and sucking though superb for him was a bu**er for me, but that was for the first few weeks then things evened out and all was lovely. The second was painful on the abdomen with pulling and drawing up, each suck dragged my womb back up, each muscle in anticipation tensed. Once I learned to take paracetamol before and relax, once again it settled. No pain no gain I think… but healthy happy full babies and a quickly flat tummy made it worthwhile. P.s. my third was a pain free piece of cake. All this tells me is that, if mum is prepared and relaxed there would be no pain. My babies are now adults, some parents themselves and all would be advocates for being breastfed. Thank you for your post this is only my own opinion and each experience is different. 😇
