    Default Sore nipples at 9+ months?? Anyone?

    I've been lucky to have never really dealt with nipple soreness, outside of 2 milk blisters while I was on maternity leave. But all of a sudden, at 9.5 months, my nipples get irritated fairly early into a feeding. I've inspected them and they look completely normal.

    What gives? And nope..definitely not preggo.

    I should add...I was just pumping and watching the left nip (I only pump one breast per sesssion) and the left side of the nipple was "spraying" well, but the right side was dribbling...not spraying at all. I don't know if that has anything to do with the soreness or not. Weird.

    Is it possible that your period is making it's return??

    This is a good (non LLL) link to more possible causes

    Why are my nipples sore after months of pain-free nursing?

    Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.

    Yes keep an eye out for AF. This is the second month she's arrived and I've noticed nipple pain about a few days before I ovulate.
