    When do these ease off?
    Mine have eased off quite a lot since she was born, but I'm still getting them and they'll come at random.
    With the boys I only got them when I was feeding, but with Amelia, they will come out of the blue, not just during a feed.

    They do definitely get worse with each baby. I was taking paracetemol and ibruprofen alternately every 2 hours cos they hurt so much with number 3. Dreading this time round. Was most painful when feeding but they did ease after a week or 10 days. Just use the painkillers and tyry not to feel guilty about it. My midwife said it was fine short term.
