So when my baby is due a feed my nipples begin to leak, they sting. Also at the beginning of a feed when let down happens they sting.. Is this normal? I don't have any more symptoms.

Totally normal. This gradually lessens and will be less stingy but it's completely normal for you to feel your key down like this.

Thank you
I'm glad to know it's normal. Hopefully it will stop soon

Mine stopped at around 12 weeks. Thought it was thrush at first but then it went

ITs completely normal, I also had painful "let down" and dreaded feeding in public as I would really wince. But it does slowly get better.

Just as a precaution- if you have a bf clinic nearby, then get your latch looked at just in case you need to make a slight tweak.
