Re: Oh my aching nipple!

I would definitely have a Lactation Consultant or LLL Leader check his latch. I am a Breastfeeding Counselor for WIC and it really does sound like a latch problem. Or maybe he is teething and that is causing the problem. For moms with younger babies I usually suggest a nipple shield which can help with correcting latch problems and also it can give you a chance to heal, but I don't know if a 10 month old would take the breast with a nipple shield on. They can be kind of set in their ways at that age! It might be worth a try, though.
