Re: Sore areolas??
ME TOO! At 5 weeks my areolas got very sore~ as though my son was chomping down on them. He is 7 wks now, and I've either grown accustomed to the pain, or he has let up. I'm sorry, no real advice, other than to check your latch- I was told that as his mouth grows, you need to teach him to suck more into his mouth (by flattening your breast and sort of jamming his head down onto it) (Jamming is probably the wrong word, but you get the idea!).
