Hi - long time googler/lurker, first time poster
I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this or if it's normal:
I'm breastfeeding (exclusively) my almost 5-week old son. For the last 3 weeks or so I've experienced breast pain and tenderness in the breast itself (there's nipple pain too, but only in my right breast - comes and goes - my son is an aggressive nurser). Basically, my breasts are tender, almost like what I used to experience right before my menstrual period would start, but there is no hardness or lumps. The pain seems to be constant - no better or worse before or after feeding. The pain is worse when apply pressure, but I can feel a little pain when moving around - jogging or jumping. I think my little one drains my breasts pretty well; at least they feel very soft after feeding. I don't recall having this with my daughter, so I was wondering if it's normal. Any input?
