I've never had any nursing problems, we've been great from day one. But in the last couple days, my nipples have been peeling and have cracks and it hurts.
Why, after 14 months do I all of a sudden have this problem, and what do I do?

I'm not ready to wean but I can see how slippery that slope would be if I skip even a couple feedings to let myself heal. He's so in love with food right now.

Not a expert by any means but I am thinking thrush. If his latch is the same and he dosnt have any new teeth rubbing spots then I cant really think of anything else it could be.

I would think thrush too.

Thanks so much!

I also think that it was aggravated by a change in detergent. During Thanksgiving at my mom's house, she washed my nursing pads with Tide (not a huge fan).

Thank you so much for your help.
