Lately my dd has been pulling SO hard when she nurses that my left breast has some deep pain going on. It's not like chapped/cracking feeling the nipples used to get in the very beginning. It's like deep in the nipple and into the center of the breast. Almost like a muscle pull or bruised feeling.
During the last week, dd has started to wake up more at night to eat. Usually 2-3 times between 11pm and 7am. I think it might be a growth spurt or teething. I'm okay with that.
But since she's nursing more frequently, the pain is aggravated that much more often.
I've been taking advil occasionally. Has anyone else experienced this, and what kinds of things did you do to relieve the pain?
