could her latch be wrong?
 
You would think I would be an expert now with Alyssa being my 4th lol, but I am still having pain while breastfeeding. Everything was fine until a few weeks ago, and mostly on one side.... but also some pain on the other its a tingling feeling that really hurts. to the point that I cringe feeding her.
She is 3.5 months old now and I would like to think her latch is still fine....

How do I tell if her latch is fine or not?

How do her lips look? They should be flanged out like a fish. You can always flip her lips out with your finger if they're not. Also, try changing the position you're nursing her in. That might help.
