I am 14 months into nursing my second baby. I am only nursing 2-3 time per day as I have stopped pumping at work. I am not sure if all this is important but just in case :) Anyways, for the past week or so during and for a few hours after nursing I will have these very intense, very painful shooting pains in my right breast. My nipple burns a bit but I have been blaming that on her latch (new teeth) and the fact that she pulls while nursing since I stopped pumping. Could this be thrush? I don't see any white patches or anything in her mouth and she seems fine. Is this just a side effect of stopping pumping? It has been a few weeks but who knows.
Thanks in advance for your help.
