Pain in the boob

All of a sudden I'm getting this shooting sharp pain in my breasts. It's like it's coming from my nipple and shooting into my boob (all on the inside of my breast, not on the outside at all). I have no clue what this could be...anyone have any thoughts? Or is it just normal stuff?

You know...for such a "natural" act, this breastfeeding stuff sure is hard! LOL

Does the pain come and go? I use to get that.

It was when it was achy......that there was a problem.

Ya it comes and goes. It will hurt for a few seconds and then be gone. Then come back (in a few minutes or hours).

Thrush is a candida infection you can get in your breast and the baby can get in his/her mouth. In the baby's mouth it looks like a white layer on his tongue and gums.

It definitely sounds like thrush. It can be VERY painful, but is cureable. Check out this site....

How old is your LO? I get pain like that from time to time, usually when there's a growth spurt and DD is nursing a little more than usual, sometimes it was almost unbearable, like a someone poking around with a needle inside my breast. I wouldn't worry about thrush unless your nipples itch and/or burn.

I have looked...but not noticed any white spots in DS's mouth. DS does kinda have a little red bottom and he often seems gassy/fussy (sometimes he only wants to be held upright with us patting him on the back, but I thought maybe he was going to be colicky?). I did have a c-section. My boobs can be a bit itchy at times. And I am still getting those random shooting pains in my breasts.

I don't know if they adds up to be thrush or not.
