    Default Pain from milk coming in??

    Ok ladies my LO is 5wks tomorrow. And in between feedings I get like these little pains here and there. Now we are batteling Thrush which I think is gone, I am on day 5 of a 10 day Diflucan treatment and Chloe is on Nystatin. I am wondering if this pain is the Thrush although it doesn't feel like it or if it is pain from my breasts refilling? Any thoughts?

    Is it a twinge or a real pain that makes you stop and think "ouch!"?

    Hey there,

    I have noticed that too, lately..both of them will feel suddenly sore and ache, it comes on quick and then settles down. ( My son is 4 weeks old yesterday)
    We don't have any infections so I would say that this is probably the milk coming in. It happens usually when its time for a feeding too!!! how amazing eh? I was washing the dishes last night...noticed the pain and when I shut the tap off, went over to my husband who was holding him, and wouldn't ya know it..he had just woke up!
    I also notice after the pain that I start to leak breast milk, little wet spot on my shirt hehe

    all the best!
