Hello all,

Looking for some advice from those that know ie you !!

I've an 8mo who I bf. Currently 3-4 feeds a day. However the mid am & pm feeds have been bit trying as he's not taking much and spends most of the feed looking around!

As a result since Tues he's not had a mud pm feed and on Thurs eve I started getting a tingling pain in my right boob. Similar to a "feed due" feeling. This feeling has continued and is in both boobs but mainly the right. It also aches and v v v occ I feel a sharp pain.

I gave a mid pm feed yday so back to four. Still feeling this odd pain. Boob is not red, lumpy and seems normal. I've had blocked ducts/engorgement before but this seems bit different. No pain during the feed.

We both have the sniffles a bit but think it's just a cold.

Wondered if it might be mastitis or boobs adjusting to one less feed.

Would be grateful to hear your thoughts!!

Could be thrush? Not linked to feeding less though as far as I know.

Bizarrely enough it's stopped! So either my boobs are gonna drop off or they were adjusting to the change in demand/supply. Clearly I'm banking on it being the latter.
