My DS will be 6 weeks Monday. We've gotten past the sore nipples, except if he comes off badly of bites or something. They're still tender at times, though. I had very sensitive nipples for the last month or so of pregnancy - could that have something to do with the tenderness now? More importantly, now my breasts hurt! Mostly in the wee hours, especially if he sleeps a little longer than usual, but sometimes even when it's only been three hours. I wake up hard as a rock and in excruciating pain! Recently, he's started going four hours between some daytime feedings and then they hurt too. My mother says it starts to get better after two months - is that about right?
