My breasts have always been on the sensitive side, and invariably hurt for a few days before each AF (and, of course, during pregnancy). They remained just as sore (not outright painful, but enough that a firm hug from DH would make me wince) to this day. I never gave that much heed, but today I suddenly thought "hmmm... I wonder if this is normal?"
Is it? If not, should I address that with my general practitioner? My OB (my otherwise wonderful OB is not very up-to-date on breastfeeding)? Somebody else?
DD is 3.5 months old and exclusively breastfed on demand. Her night sleep has been fairly erratic in the last few weeks, so some nights she wakes up to nurse every 2 hours, and sometime (just like yesterday) she sleeps for 5 hours straight, so by the time she wakes me up, my breast are pretty full and even more sore. I don't have a fever, red streaks, or any other alarming symptoms.
