Hey lovely ladies!
BF is going well but lately i've noticed this weird sharp pain that goes from my nipple to my armpit when she feeds.
I thought it might just be a strong let down, but I feel it once she's latched and as soon as she starts sucking - she does have a very strong suck.
It kinda hurts but it's a weird pain that I can't describe - in a way it's almost like she's somehow scratching an internal itch - sounds weird but I can't describe it any other way so once she starts sucking there is some kinda of weird relief once the pain starts - I don't have any lumps or anything to indicate a blocked duct and it's the breast that doesn't seem to produce as much - any ideas?
I do have very sore arms from feeding her and falling asleep with her in arms at night I think - so there is a bit of strain in that area - but not sure if that is what is causing it - could it be from using the pump and the pump putting strain on the nipple maybe?
