    Default Sore nips

    Ouch! For the last few weeks my nipples have gotten increasingly more tender and sore. What is up?

    Pms.....even if I don't have af yet....can they still get sore around that time when your body would normally have it?

    If he's teething maybe his latch is changing? try to make sure he's latched properly...You can have hormonal fluctuations like a cycle even if you aren't cycling yet...is anything helping? have you tried ointment?
