Re: Sore Nipples
Can you describe the soreness/pain a little more? Does it come at the beginning of the feeding, during letdowns, or at the end of the feeding? Any other changes/sensations accompanying it?
I'd be inclined to blame teething, since the pain is coming predominantly when your DS is nursing. But it wouldn't hurt to try a different size of breastshields or to try turning the suction down on your pump to the minimum effective level.
You also might want to try some different bottles. It's really easy to latch onto a bottle compared to the breast, so your baby might be gaining some sloppy latch habits from the bottle.
