    Has the latch changed at all? Around this age my lo was a gymnast at the breast, tugging and pulling me every which way. Or teething? This can cause a bit of irritation, too.

    Could it be thrush? New-onset nipple pain after pain-free nursing can point to a yeast issue.

    Thanks. I looked into thrush but it don't think so? I'm wondering about teething, as dd2 has had teething rash, but I've not had lingering discomfort when she's has teething rash in the past. I'm wondering too if it could be something hormonal like an ovarian cyst?
