DS2 is 13 months old and for the last week both nipples have been really sore when he nurses and even in the shower when the water touches them. I got really sore about a month ago too, but it was only on one side and it turned into a much deeper pain which I think was a blocked duct (lasted about 3 days). The soreness kinda feels like the soreness I had when DS and I had thrush when he was just born. But I had been battling yeast for a lot of my pregnancy so I wasn't surprised when he got thrush then. We treated it with grapefruit seed extract and haven't had a problem since and I haven't had any yeast infections either. DS doesn't have any signs of thrush though-- no white patches in his mouth or yeast diaper rash and neither of us have been on antibiotics. My periods started back when DS was 5 WEEKS old and I've been on the minipill since 6 weeks postpartum. My next AF is due in 5 days, although sometimes it's a little wonky due to the minipill. DS has 8 teeth, but doesn't have any new ones coming in and doesn't seem to be teething.
Anyone else have soreness suddenly develop in both nipples and what was the cause?
