What is going on?!

Postby litmajor » Tue Mar 05, 2013 8:03 am

Lately, my nipples have been incredibly sore and I have had a stronger than normal letdown. I'm about to go get gel pads for my nipples, which I haven't used in 5 months! Is there anything that could be causing this? I was thinking yesterday that DD might be going through a growth spurt, but I'm not sure if she's actually eating more often or if I just noticed each time because my nipples were killing me.

Any ideas? She's six months old.

I've noticed my nipples have been a lot more sore lately, too. Idk what it is, though! Maybe a hormonal shift?

Are you getting AF back? Did she just get teeth? When DS first got his top teeth it felt like I was first nursing again for awhile, then we adjusted.

Could it be teeth? That made BFing sore again for us.

I felt her gums yesterday and didn't notice anything significant. I did have some slight spotting after DTD the other night so I thought that might be AF coming, but nada yet. Seems like it's calmed down a little... Maybe just weird hormones.
