I'm trying to figure out how to get through this. My 15 mo. old is still a happy, active nurser, and I'm glad about that. I don't really want to wean, but lately my nipples really hurt when he nurses. I remember this happening with my older son while I was ovulating as well as may a day before my period. This time my nipples have been really sore for almost a week. It takes so much away from our nursing sessions, and I just don't like nursing when it hurts. (Obviously.) So, is something weird going on with his nursing style, or could this just be a loooooong PMS phase? I am not pregnant (unless it's a miracle). I'm also constipated and sick to my stomach... haven't yet had a PP period.
Do you think this will pass (like it's hormonal?)-- or do you think he might be nursing differently all of a sudden? I nursed my first till he was 22 months, so I have some experience nursing a toddler with teeth.
(PS-- just saw my signature! I need to update that... I had that August baby well over a year ago! Yikes).
