A couple days ago my boob started hurting. Not my nipple my boob like the "top" and inside of it. Also, when Flynn is feeing or I am pumping (on that side only) it feels like he/the pump is trying to suck knives through my nipple. This pain is way different from pain of a bad latch.

Oh but then it does sound like this too since I don't think I have a fever and I am not achy (like with the infection).
When your baby sucks at your breast, you experience milk let-down. Your milk is leaving the breast ducts and heading toward your nipple. Some women have a forceful let-down reflex, which causes a shooting pain sensation in the breasts. This is caused by the constriction occurring in the milk ducts. If you produce an abundant amount of milk, you will be more likely to experience these deep, sharp pains. If your milk supply is more than your baby can handle, you will notice him appearing to be choking on the milk as it is released into his mouth. According to La Leche League International, over time, the breast discomfort or deep twinges will decrease, and your baby will find it much easier to manage your milk supply.
