My 22 month old DD is a champion nurser and we have (thankfully!) had a very easy time of it. However, in the past week, my right nipple has been really hurting. The best way to describe the pain is that it feels like she constantly biting me (she will switch over to the left and I don't feel the pain). My breast isn't swollen and there's no discoloration of my nipple. It just really hurts. I've hand expressed, and it seems like I have plenty of milk. My right breast does produce more than my left.
My only thought is that it might be a signal my cycle is returning, but that could be wishful thinking. Has anyone had a similar experience?
