Breast Soreness??

Hey mamas...
I have been nursing my lo for a bit more than 5 months and have been very blessed to not have any problems with nursing. Just recently (starting last night) my left breast has been really sore. Only on the "inner" side, there's no redness/swelling/lumps/rash anything so I'm a little confused as to why this is happening. I've been using breast compression while nursing just to ensure it's not a plugged duct and will try using a heat pack later. I'm just wondering if any mamas have any thoughts or experiences... I really don't want this to turn into something more serious/annoying!

Thanks mamas


** I also wanted to add... Her latch seems okay. She does have a new tooth so she's been biting a little bit and her latch has been a bit funky but overall it's been pretty good.

I've had that happen a few times and never figured out what it was. It usually only lasts 2-3 days.

Thanks so much for replying mama! It's good to know that it will probably go away soon.
