My son is 16 months old and comfort nurses A LOT during the day and all night. The last few days my nipples have been so sore that I practically cringe when he latches on...

He is a BIG boy, he is over 40 pounds. Do you think his latch is just too strong? What else could be causing me so much pain? I have no bumps or sores on my nipples, they look just fine...

Thanks ladies. I'm in pain so any advice or suggestions are welcome....

My name is Erin, I'm a 24 year old Aries, I love country music, adore my husband and 2 kids, and am currently TTC # 3 while still nursing my son. I believe in attachment parenting, I co-sleep with both of my kids and wouldn't have it any other way. I'm always looking for new friends!

My 13 month old has taken to biting me, is it that by chance? I really only feel it when he is pulling off and I'm still stuck between his teeth.

Nope, no biting or scraping...

could be several things.. thrush comes to mind first, or pregnancy/period

Sometimes my nipples just feel raw, if you think this may be the case, try some lanolin.

My nipples always get sore from hormonal issues such as when I'm about to start my period or when I'm ovulating.
