Extended BF and pain!!

I nursed all 3 of my girls with no problems, until now. Abby will be 3 in December and starting last week, when she nurses, it is excrutiating. It is like she is biting me.....I don't get it. All of a sudden...both breasts, and position, any time. I don't think that she is doing anything conscious....any ideas??

Either she is lazy with her latch or you are pregnant or have a yeast infection in the breast. Is the pain shooting?

I better not be pregnant! My tubes were tied when she was born.
I am thinking its more of a lazy thing, but why? Did she teeth a new set of teeth taht I have to worry about? Did she get a cavity (she has some tooth decay ) that is making a jagged tooth cut into my breast? That is what it feels like, like she has a tooth constantly snagging a breast. I don't want to wean her, she isn't ready, but if doesn't clear up soon, she will be. I cannot sleep any more, she is a night nurser and she actually wakes me up now.

My dd has a differant shaped mouth than ds and whn she bf's it can be very painful ~ like she's biting me but she is not! I never realized this bc she self weaned @13mo (1 mo before ds was born) but she started bf'g again about 4-5 mo ago and it hurt sooo bad! That's when I realized it was the shape of her little mouth!

I felt like that just before we weaned, but I was pregnant, and I think it was because my supply was waning a bit, and ds wasn't too happy about it. It is unusual to get infections when you've been nursing for so long, but it's possible it is yeast or something, KWIM? Hope things get better soon!
