Man. They were kinda sore from the beginning, but now every time DS latches on I feel like he is biting my nipple off. Anyone else? I thought it was going to get BETTER, not worse! Maybe this means my milk is drying up totally? He still gets maybe three let downs a day from one boob, but only one or two from the other.

Yep. Mine were fine in the beginning but they feel pretty raw now. I am also hoping that they will start to feel better. I hate that I cringe every time she latches on.

Mine feel pretty much better when DS latches, except for when he decides that he's not done even with the milk is. Then he turns on the "super suck" and I feel like my boob is going to fall off. Ouch!

Oh my gosh ME TOO! I was just thinking this morning in the shower as I was having to turn away from the water, "Shouldn't this be getting BETTER??".

You took the words out of my mouth. The shower has been particularly bad. I don't remember it being this bad with my previous pregnancies! Nursing is to the point of extreme pain for me and I don't want to do it. I still let her nurse before nap/bed which means 1-2 times/day (sometimes she skips a nap), but I really don't look forward to it. Luckily, she'll suck for just a minute or two and be okay when I say "all done".

My last nursed until he was 3 and I was nearly 9 months pregnant. I know it was uncomfortable, but I don't remember the pain. Am I just forgetting? LOL!
