Although pain is not a normal part of nursing, many mothers experience this difficulty at some point in their breastfeeding journey. It is one of the main reasons for breastfeeding consultations, and an important cause of early, undesired weaning, especially if the infant is not thriving. Assessment of pain during lactation differs significantly from other types because it is a system we must explore – not a single patient but the interaction between the mother and her infant (that is, the dyad). In this talk, an ecosystemic overview of the evaluation and management of breast and nipple pain is offered, based on current research and clinical practice. With appropriate support, the vast majority of dyads are able to breastfeed comfortably and effectively.

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain the importance of an ecosystemic approach to the dyad for adequate evaluation and management of breast and nipple pain
2. Describe 3 clinical causes of breast and nipple pain
3. Name 2 strategies for managing the main causes of breast and nipple pain, including which patients/clients will require referral to other healthcare providers
