Lately, I have experienced a lot of pain while nursing, especially at the beginning of each session. Also, My 8 month old has started pulling his head back and away from my breast (while still latched) and/or using his fist to kind of brace himself and push himself back and away creating a more shallow latch, and making nursing him extremely painful. Ive tried reminding him to be "gentle" and removing him when it's painful, but this hasnt helped much and frustrates him. Im wondering why he might be doing this and what to do about it. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
