    Default Suddenly my son is sucking so much harder...sore nipples. (no better way to describe)

    My son will be 4 months old on the 16th. He is exclusively breastfed and no bottles for about a month. The past two weeks, he has started sucking so much harder and it's making my nipples sore. When they get touched, especially when carrying him since he's not careful , there is a tingly sensation, like when you hit your funny bone, but not prolonged. They have even started to feel bruised in the past two days. I have heard of the 4-mo fussies, but is this it? I won't stop, but this is getting challenging. At first it was just annoying, but now it's starting to be painful. He's got a good/deep latch, just is strongly sucking. Please advise...Thanks!

    Could it be thrush?

    Have you gotten your period back yet? Around when I ovulate I get very sensitive nipples that are very sore for a few days. Any chance that you are preg again?
