uncomfortable milk ejection

i had always felt something during let-down, but recently the one side has had a somewhat uncomfortable let-down. it isn't terribly painful, just very uncomfortable. is this normal? no other symptoms-no redness or swelling, or pain upon touching, although it is a little tender when pressure is applied. any suggestions? thanks ladies! (i have been nursing for almost 20 months)

  • Has the baby been a little rough nursing lately? I get tender if DD isn't always behaved while nursing, or if she doesn't quite have the right latch.

  • hmm, i guess she has been moving around more while nursing, and when i am laying on my back she lays across my chest to nurse (which is a fairly new position for her). maybe that is it. thanks ladies, i will keep an eye on it though, just to be sure the symptoms don't change.

  • I would go in and get it checked out. With 2 of my kids I had a Candidia infection (yeast in the deep breast tissue). If you do have a yeast issue you run the risk of giving it to your baby. Have them check out your baby for thrush while you are there to make sure.
