    Question Soreness after almost 4 months?

    I have been able to BF my DD from day one without one bit of pain. Now that she's 4 months my nipples are starting to get sore. Is that normal? I'm assuming it's because she is able to suck much harder than when she was a newborn?

    could it be teething? When my daughter was about to cut her first top teeth my nipples were really really sore, I did not know why at the moment, then she got the teeth, and I read in the Womanly Art of Bfing that you can get sore nipples because they suck differently when they're teething.

    maybe your period is getting ready to return.
    Lots of moms have sore nipples around that time of the month.
    If it doesn't feal beter in a few days maybe something else is going on.
    heres a good link from kelly moms about where nipple pain comes from
