Hi! I have had terribly sore nipples for going on a week now. At first I thought my daughter (who turned 7 months this week) wasn't opening her mouth enough, but we've worked on that and my condition hasn't improved...
She's not showing any signs of teething (I don't see or feel anything on her gums)...
But what "clicked" this evening, is that the "cuts" (they look like gashes) and pain, are on the upper-outsides of my nipples, like where her top gums are... does that make sense?
Could that be a latch problem? Or something else?
I really need help with this -- I cry through every nursing session!
Any tips or direction would be appreciated!
