I seem to recall vaguely reading about this somewhere - something to do with milk ducts becoming inflamed or something?
I feed my 20mth dd 2-4 times in 24hrs. When I have fed her after a long gap, eg today I fed her at 6am then not again until about 8pm, I get terrible shooting pains in my boobs shortly (about half an hour or so) after feeding. No other obvious problems, no engorgement, no redness etc etc. Just bloody bloody sore boobs, esp the left.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what this could be? Or advice?
Yeah, was sore, but has faded down now, so maybe one of the DC blundered into my poor boob at recently, and that's why it hurt. DS is 18m, has very sharp teeth , and pulls a lot when feeding. I am very close to making him stop (only 1-3x/day anyway). Your problem sounds more chronic. Maybe keep bumping this and hope someone like TikTok can advise.
Yes, am hoping Tiktok is around tbh! DD pulls a lot too, and def clamps down a lot more on the sore side. Are you going to try to cut down/stop altogether? I think about it every so often but I'm not sure, but that's another thread...!
