  • It actually kind of sounds like your milk is letting down.

  • Call your doctor or a lactation consultant. You could have a little clog in one of your milk ducts and when the milk is empty from the rest of the ducts, that one starts hurting. You can also try putting a warm compress on your breast once you start to feel the pain and then putting baby back on the breast. Often times, if it is a clog, the warmth can loosen it up enough for baby to get it out. I'm no expert though so a doctor or lactation consultant would probably be your best source.
