Maybe I should've added that I do have mild nipple pain but it could be due to Raynauds syndrome. They are also blanched and somewhat lipstick shaped after nursing. My pain is not what I am concerned about though. He struggles at the breast even in between letdowns. The clicking is causing him to draw in so much air I can actually hear him swallowing it. This leads to explosive poops, lots of farting and burps long after he eats. Nursing him takes as long as it did when he was a newborn and he never "drains" my breasts. Sometimes he fusses and gets angry tugging on my nipples like he can't get what he wants.
If there is no problem I don't want to create one but if there is one I want to correct it. I tried to correct this on my own with no luck. Sometimes you let issues go until someone points them out to you.
