Sore Nipple after 9 Months of Pain Free Breastfeeding!!!
So my LO just got her two bottom teeth in. She's on table food now, but still nurses for her naps and at night, and randomly throughout the day if she wants to "snack". I don't know what happened, if it was a poor latch during a night feeding or what, but my right nipple is sore as heck. It's dark red/purplish, and so painful when she nurses. It's even painful just to have fabric over it! It's also her favorite side, and she's having a hard time because it's so painful I only let her nurse on that side a couple times during the day. I don't think it's mastitis but I have no idea what it could be. I've been using lanolin.
Any suggestions? I really don't want to see my doctor.
