Hi! I've been happily exclusively breastfeeding for 9.5 months (pumping 3x a day during the week while at work) and have had very few issues to date - thankfully!
Now, all of a sudden, both of my nipples are very sore when I pump or breastfeed - almost raw-feeling.
There are no open wounds and other than appearing slightly redder than normal, everything looks the same.
DD has 2 bottom teeth and 4 on the way up top - could that be what is causing this new discomfort? I don't feel like she is biting me at all...
Any suggestions for relief? I've been using nipple cream, but it doesn't seem to be making a difference.
Thanks in advance!
