Happened to me, it was like it was refilling pain or something. It went around 10 weeks or so. It's totally obnoxious though. I found massaging my breasts helped with the pain, and so did a hot water bottle some.
It is like a refilling pain. Massage does help and I'll try massage and some extra vitamin b6. I don't think I have blanching, but I'll watch more next feeding. It seems to be worse when she feeds very frequently like she has the past couple of days. When she spaces her feedings out around every two hours, the pain is very mild.
Just checked Dr. Jack Newman site quickly and couldn't find much on that type of pain (lots on nipple pain, though). Probably the very best resource I know of is kellymom. Do you know that site? Masses of really good, well-researched info. Well worth checking out, if you haven't already!
Meanwhile, the Vit B6 is water soluble and certainly not going to hurt you or baby. And it's cheap!
