I am wondering the same thing, breastfeeding has become painful. My ds has two on the bottom and four on the top and it is the top teeth that really hurt. I'll be watching your post to see if anyone replies with some good advice.

I think it has to do with the teething process rather than the teeth themselves (unless he's actually biting). When my dd is teething, I don't know if her latch changes or she sucks harder or what, but my nipples will be sore for a few weeks, and then they're back to normal. She got her bottom two teeth at 6 months, and we had pain for a few weeks, then we were fine until about a month ago - sure enough, 2 more teeth on the top. Now we're back to being fine again <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">
