    Default ouchie ouchie ouchie

    Lately, when my 18 month old ds latches on, my nipples hurt! At first I thought it was his latch, so I'd unlatch, and relatch, but that's not it. Then I thought it might be position, but it hurts in every single position we've tried...and there's been literally thousands....
    It's gotten to the point where I literally flinch when he's latched on or even asks me for his boobies...

    And no, there's no way I could be pregnant....I hada tubal ligation immediatly after he was born....

    It's not mastitis or thrush...I know what both of those feel like...and like I said, it's not pregnancy. I've changed positions many times....
    It could be ovulation, but I'm still not regular yet, and I'm having a hard time decyphering that.....

    Pretty much only when he is nursing....and I know I'm not pregnant...my hubby's deployed, and I had my tubes tied...so there's no possible way it's pregnancy...
    It's been this way since my last period (that was 3 weeks ago), but I'm so irregular that I'm never sure when I'll get my next one....in fact, since his birth, I've only had 4 periods....

    And I am so sensitive, that a soap change causes hives, so I never change my brand of soap....

    has he been eating more solids?

    I found that sometimes the solids that they ate would bother my nipples?
    worth thinking about?
