For the BF mom's...

Does your boob ever hurt? My daughter is 5 months old and occasionally when I BF her it hurts intially but then is fine after a little while, actually only on one side. I've noticed lately that the same boob kinda hurts. Not all the time but it's like a sharp pain that only last for a few seconds but will come back shortly after it goes away. It usually starts right around my nipple and will shoot up.

Any one else ever experience anything like this?

  • Sounds like you have an infection. If you go to dr they can give you antibiotics. I had it so bad in both breasts I had to stop breast feeding.

  • I get sharp tingly feelings around my breasts and down to my nipple when my milk comes down. If you feel like something is wrong, go to the doctor.
