? for moms who BF...

I've been BF my son who is almost 10 months. I've only had 4 regular periods and I think I am noticing something. Right before I get my monthly BF my son is painful.
Anyone else have this?
Anyone know why this happens?

  • Yeah, it's part of PMS. Sucks (no pun intended). Extra side effect of the tender breasts so common with PMS. Then again, good warning so that you can be prepared and not ruin another pair of panties with unexpected spotting.

  • Usually as part of my PMS symptoms my breast do become sore and it is a bit uncomfortable to BF. Just like when you don't BF, tender breasts are a common sign that your period is on its way. YEAH for changes in our hormones!! (that was sarcasm)

  • This is very common.
