When I was pregnant with my dd and nursing my ds, I got breast tenderness almost immediately....it was really hard, but I got him to open wide when he latched ( he was around 27 months when I got pregnant) and that helped. The pain subsided around 5 months, my milk was gone at 4 months though, and he continued to nurse till the 8th month.
When I was pregnant with my last baby, I didn't get sore UNTIL the 4th month. It was so strange. I kept waiting for the pain, and I didn't. It wasn't until my supply dipped that I started to experience nipple tenderness and pain.
I'm still nursing my 27 month old dd now and am not experiencing any pain again. I'm glad. I'm not sure what the future holds as far as weaning or future tandem nurisng, but I have a long time to think about it. Don't worry if you are or aren't experiencing pain, every baby, and pregnancy is different.
