I am 9 weeks and then some now, and just noticed with ds (28 mos) that my nipples have stopped hurting as bad as they were just days ago...Anyone else feel like it's not as painful to nurse...It was so painful just a week ago.
I don't have soreness any more, but I don't have much milk either. Like a drop.
One nice thing is the other night ds slept through (8+ hours) for the first time in his life. He is 33 months old. However last night he had a night terror, woke up a bunch and then got up early. Maybe it was just a fluke but it sure was nice!
I'm almost 12 weeks, and it still hurts. Plus, my milk is gone, although Julian insists there's "a little bit in there". I can't express a single drop.
But, no way in hell am I weaning this boy before he's ready, and he seems perfectly content to keep nursing with or without milk.
It wasn't really that painful for me in the beginning, but I don't notice much pain now either. My dd will pull away like it tastes funny sometimes, but she goes right to the "other nummie please" until she pulls away and repeats with that one. It must be the taste.
