Ds is almost 6 months. Bf'ing has gone very well. But since overnight- I have awful nipple pain- when he's nursing- and when he's not. I feel like I need to hold bra/pads off nipple because they are sore. Both of them! No thrush, no mastitis- just painful nipples! His latch is normally fine?!

Return of Af, teething, pregnancy, thrush. These are the most common causes

It's actually quite common, but I don't think anyone could add anything for you.  Don't pump unless you have to; pumps make it worse. Lots of lanolin.
