    Default Is this common???

    Hubby and I found out on vacation last week that we are expecting baby #2 in May. Well, the entire time on vacation and from then on my boobs are super sore when my 3 y/o is nursing. It's just sore when he initially latches on, but then the pain goes away. The soreness is in the nipple area the most.

    Is this common with expecting mothers?? Thanks for any input ladies!

    First congrats! Yes sore nipples are common. It lasted about a month for me. Check out the book Adventures in Tandem Nursing by Hillary Flower. It was super helpful!

    YES my 3yo DD nursed thru my entire preg with my son, and it HUUUUURT, specifically the initial latch on. Totally normal. She weaned when he was born, it was her own idea...whew! I would have tandem nursed, but she turned 4 a week before he was born so I am glad she weaned on her own!
