    I've been breastfeeding my son for 15 months and over the last few days he's really not been nursing as often as he had been. Every now and again I'm feeling a wave of pain going right down to my nipples. I wasn't sure if this was normal or not and could it be related to my son not nursing as often? I'm not feeling engorged or anything just these waves of pain. :wacko:

    I thought I'd ask for advice here first :flower:

    Thank you xx

    Not sure, but one of the symptoms of thrush is pain after a period of pain free feeding. Any other symptoms that might help work out what it is?
    Hope you feel better soon x

    Thank you.

    I don't have any other symptoms, just feels like a wave of pain every now and again. Although felt more sensitive than usual but I imagine that's just down to being sore.

    If it's still there during the week I think I'll try and get an appointment to see dr - just no idea what it is! xx

    could be thrush. take acidophilus (you can get it from Holland & Barrett) and it will help get rid of it if you have it, or guard against it if you don't :flower:

    Could be related to the drop in feeds - like your supply regulating or something :shrug:

    Thank you for all the replies :flower:

    Celesse - AF came back at 12.5 months. Only had two but didn't think could be related to that - thanks!

    Feeling a bit better today.

    Aphrodite - hope you feel better soon :hugs: I was feeling pain in both sides but it's definitely worse on my right side xx

    I did get AF :haha: but I don't think that's what it was. Now have really dry/cracked patch on my right side. Thinking should phone drs tomorrow but for now I guess I should look out the lansinoh! xx
