i am 5 1/2 weeks pregnant and still no nipple pain at all when i nurse (except the first couple of days after we conceived). am i being totally stupid to worry about this?? i am experiencing other mild pregnancy symptoms (my 1st trimester with my son wasn't so bad though so i may be one of those lucky people) but last time i got pregnant (ended at 12 weeks) my nipples were KILLING me while i nursed. but i can't remember at what point they started to hurt. anyway, i guess i'm looking for some reassurance.

thanks

I'm not feeling any pain when nursing...and I'm about as far along as you, I think (edd late January). In fact, I'm not feeling terribly pregnant at all -- as I said in response to another post, I'm tired and hungry and b*tchy, but that's no different from usual.


Try not to worry too much about it. Every woman, and every pregnancy, is different...

I wouldn't worry about it, my nipples didn't start hurting until 6-7 weeks. Now, at almost 11 weeks, they still hurt, and my milk is GONE. If you're really lucky, maybe your nips won't hurt at all, but I think you're too early to tell if they will or not.

I'm 6 weeks and I don't really feel any pain. Every once in a while there's a little discomfort but that's it. I know my milk supply has gone down though because Noah is complaining that he hasn't had his fill.

No soreness at all. THe downside: almost no milk either
I feel so mean limiting his nursing sessions but he will literally stay latched around the clock hoping for milk and I just can't handle that. My little nurser is 22 mos and I'm due in January (appx 7 wks along and feelin groovy!) DOes anybody else feel kind of mean because they have to stop a kiddo from nursing when there's no milk?
Namaste, Tara

I am 9 wks and feeling no pain! My guy is 26m and still nurses fairly often and truly am having no pain. When I was pg with ds#3 I was VERY sore and sore the whole pg!!! With ds#2 I had no pain. Go figure
I haven't limited my ds's nursing at all. I don't think I have that much milk...more at some times than others....but if it makes him happy Ok with me
. Lots of times toddlers nurse just for comfort and the milk is just an added plus!

I had no pain until I was about 6 and a half weeks. I am now 8 weeks and 2 days, and lots of pain initially, but then after a good 10 min of nursing, it feels normal. i do get frustrated though with ds nursing all night long...He's been really crabby and I think it's because my supply is a lot lower...so he screams for it all night long...but then I feel dehydrated all night long....

thanks so much for the replies, i do feel reassured.

noah's two and a half now and i day-weaned him as soon as i found out i was pregnant, because after the nipple pain from my last pregnancy i vowed not to go through that again, it was worse than when he was tongue-tied as a newborn! anyway, i guess it's ironic that he's only nursing a couple times at night now, and i'm not even feeling the pain. luckily weaning went MUCH more smoothly than i anticipated. but like some of you said, i guess i'm still early and it could happen any day...i should just enjoy the pain-free nursing sessions while they last

I'm 5 1/2 also and no pain. My milk supply is going down also which worries me because I'm the only source of nutrition for my DS. He refuses food at 7 months. I wonder if I need to go to formula or goat milk...anyone have advice?
