Our daughter is almost 10 months old. She is EBF and has started solids (fruits, veggies, some pureed meats, etc.)
The problem is that I am at my wits end with breastfeeding. When she was born, she latched almost immediately, but I always had issues with her feeding on my right breast. It was painful and uncomfortable, but I toughed it out and after about 6 weeks it got better. Until about 4 weeks ago. It was about the same time as her teeth came in. Now it hurts like hell to feed her on my right side. It isn't just the nipple (although that seems to be taking a beating) but rather my whole breast. It aches when I am not feeding her and feels like it is on fire when she is nursing. I have actually screamed once or twice when she has first latched on.
It has gotten to the point where I have to pump from that side and then bottle feed her just because it is a little less painful than having her nurse. I have purchased some cooling gel pads to help with the pain too.
Any ideas as to what could be causing this? She bites every now and then, but this pain isn't the same. I checked her throat and she doesn't appear to have thrush (and wouldn't I have it on both sides if that were the case?)
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
