I have been EBF my DD for almost 10 months and her latch is all of the sudden very painful!! I have tried & think she is getting a good latch but ouch!! I did think maybe my nipples are tired and wore out haha. But of course that's not possible :-p oh! and she pulls on my boob with her mouth like she just cant suck hard enough!!! anyone else experience this & any suggestions. :-/

Re: Painful latch at 10 months
Did she recently cut teeth? My 10-month old's latch got really strong whens she was figuring out how to position a comfortable latch with 2 new pearly teeth.

Or, maybe she's about to cut teeth?

No advice but do you think you might be pregnant? That's usually one of the first signs for someone who is breast feeding.

She has both front bottom teeth and the the front top teeth. The sides are workin their way in now.

You can still get preggo before you get your first period.... :D

It's kinda funny that UVA mentioned that. DD1 acted the same way nursing, and it was because I was unknowingly 7 weeks pregnant and my supply had tanked and I didn't realize it.

Oh dear lord! Haha might have to dig a prego test out!!

clexiske06 03-15-2013 08:38 AM

My 14 months at the time was on and odds and yes it hurt to nurse and I read pregnant. Could be just getting used to new stage. I'm breastfeeding my newest and I still have had some moments of soreness and he is a month and a half now.
