I am hoping that all of you experienced nursing moms can help me. Up until two days ago, I considered myself one of you...ds is nearly 22 months old, and he loves to nurse. We have a great schedule of three times a day, and I plan on keeping this up for as long as we both love it. Never had any problems at all of any kind since he's been 12 weeks old.
Boom! All of a sudden two days ago he goes to nurse and it feels like needles in my nipple, I just wanted to scream. Now it's both sides! The poor kid wants to nurse so much but I can only let him for a few minutes, and being a marathon nurser, he's not happy.
I am unquestionably not pregnant.
I can't see any difference in his latch.
My nipples are bright red and so sore.
Oh, I just don't know what to do. I never expected this. Has it ever happened to any of you?
