My daughter is 10 months. She nurses about 3-4 times a day. Lately when she nurses on my right nipple I notice that it feels very painful. It feels like a thousand needles going into my nipple. I cant tell if she is rubbing my nipple against her top little teeth when she nurses, or if its something wrong with my nipple itself.
The only other thing I can think it is is pregnancy related. I just found out I was pregnant, and with all my pregnancies I have had sore boobs and nipples but this is the first time nursing and finding out I am pregnant. Anyone experience this when they were pregnant? Anything else this could be?

I bet it is pregnancy related.
Since she is only 10 months old she should still be getting most of her nutrition from breastmilk. Since she is nursing only 3-4 times a day and your supply is dropping she may not get enough to meet her needs for brain growth and other developmental needs. Formula fed babies need 32 oz of formula until they are 12 months old. Cow's milk or goat's milk is not recommended until after 12 months.
