  • Are you still breast feeding? That acutally never happened to me but I have only one child and I only nursed for a month! But I asked my mother. :P And she says that the sensitivity should come eventually come back! Just give them time to not be used to being beaten up by baby's mouth. :) Good luck!

  • If you're still bf you'll feel like that until you stop.

  • i loved having him play but i don't now....but because i'm breastfeeding but because i'm pregnant and they just don't feel the same. i don't know if it's the same with breastfeeding. but i just don't get the good sexual sensations anymore. it actually almost hurts...not from soreness but from the different sensations i feel in the nipple area.

  • Op Here: Yes, I am still breastfeeding and my baby is 5 mos not. lately I am just not into sex anymore, the touching, kissing or caressing.. whats the deal?

  • The deal is you're normal. Libido is insurance that you will be fruitful and multiply. Your body knows it's accomplished the goal of reproduction, so libido often goes into "sleep mode" for a while.

    It WILL pass.

  • It disgusts me when my hubby tries to play with my breasts while I'm breastfeeding, however when I stop breastfeeding he can go right back to it... When I am producing milk I feel they are strictly for feeding it makes me feel dirty if he plays with em...

  • Don't worry, the lack of sensitivity is temporary.
