Hi all,

My little one is 15 months and this has been nagging at me since shortly after she was born. I thought it might go away on its own... but has not!

Around the time my milk first came in, I noticed that parts of my breast were numb. It's totally odd. I can pinch the skin and feel nothing. It's not my whole breast, just a bit underneath and on one side (of both).

I brushed it off when I first noticed, but now I'm starting to wonder if this is something I should see my Dr. about.

Has anyone else experienced this?

thanks for your input

Are they always numb? Because at times I'll look down and see that DD is pinching my nipple while she nurses on the other side and I absolutely can't feel it....but other times the sensitivity returns. I figure it was natures way of keeping us from going crazy from having kids hanging from out boobs all the time:) but maybe yours is more extreme numbness?

It seems like the numbness is there all the time. I've been thinking since posting that it could be due to stretching? I have also thought, when DD is pinching me repeatedly on the breast, that it could just be nature's way of protecting us! lol
