Joe is two years old and we had been nursing happily and painlessly (except some sore times right around my period) for, uh, 20 months. But just last month, before my period, my nipples got really sore. More than usual for PMS. Nursing became downright painful. I expected it to go away once I got AF, but it didn't. And it still hurts, quite a bit, two weeks later. It's weird, it feels like there has been some trauma, but I don't see anything funny. It started out being mostly the right side, but now the left side hurts too! What's up??
SIMMER DOWN LADIES, I AM NOT PREGNANT. No, really, it's not possible. Trust me on this one.
It's not burning like thrush, it just hurts, like I have an injury.
Lazy latch? Or maybe Joe did hurt me, during toddler nursing acrobatics and I just didn't notice?
Sigh. It's annoying. Joe only nurses a four or five times a day and a couple times at night now, but it's pretty annoying. I can handle it, but nursing is no longer cuddly and fun. I don't know what's up.
