Maybe this is why he's popping ON and OFF the breast?

It looks like a yeast infection aka as thrush. Do you have this on/around your nipples? Do your nipples itch or hurt?

You should get him into the doc asap! They can give you two antibiotics to get rid of it.

Okay. Well, he's got it. Def get him in asap! You will need treatment too because if one of you has it, the other one does.

I wash them off with water everyday when I take a shower but I don't wash them before every nursing

Go get some gentian violet. Paint it on your nipples before nursing. That treats you both at the same time.
