    Default Sore nipples while baby is teething

    Hi ladies,

    My son is 8 1/2 months. He has had his bottom two teeth for months now, but he has 4 new ones coming in on the top. My nipples are sore/tender/slightly burning but ONLY while nursing. They feel and look fine otherwise, and he is NOT biting. Could this be from teething? If so, is there anything to help with the comfort during a feeding or just deal with it?

    Thanks.
    my adorable baby boy, and he loves it, nappies but love that little fluffy bottom, just started BLW & dishing out healthier meals for my family , vacuuming up a storm now that he rolls everywhere, and when I get a minute.

    Mothering has definitely gotten me more in tune with my inner latent .

    mine are the same way, especially my right one. T has 2 bottom and 2 top and is teething like non stop.

    I leave mine out to breathe and that seems to help

    Thanks. Letting them air out helps with the pain after nursing? B/c I don't have pain after, only while he is nursing.

    Their latch seems to switch up a bit sometimes when they are teething. It should get better when the teeth come in.

    I dug this up in the hopes of finding some reassurance right now. The LO is 6 1/2 months and teething like mad. Actually, one little bid popped up on the bottom 3 days ago and now it has disappeared! This baby has been teething for mOnths. But the nips are really starting to get sore- like-- eek! Idk! It's weird and I don't know what to do mamas! Is this teething related?

    It may be teething related. But it might not. If this is a burning pain that persists in between feedings, you could be looking at thrush.
