She could be nursing funny due to teething. Try and be extra careful about getting correct latch.
Perhaps offer the water in a cup, so she doesn't think she can chew on nipples, rubber or yours.
Also offer a cold wet washcloth to chew on, before, during or after a nurse.
Plugs can happen if you get too busy, and shorten or skip feeds, or if she starts spacing them out on her own.
Is she starting solids? Sometimes you can get an allergic reaction on your nipples, if she nurses right after eating solids.
Problems can happen at any time, as things change!
