Do you notice your baby nursing more intensely (or something) and causing more sore nipples as they get older?
I only nurse full time on the weekends (nurse evening, overnight, morning during the week since I work, I pump at work), and I've started noticing by Sunday night or Monday morning my nipples are so sore. I was wondering if my DD is just more aggressive at nursing as she's gotten older? I don't remember this happening a month or two ago and before. I use lanolin after pumping at work but I don't use it at home (mostly just because I dont wear nursing pads at home and I don't want it messing up my tanks and bras), but I guess I may start using it on the weekends some.
I was going to suggest teething as well. I notice Kolbie really goes to town when new teeth are coming in. She's working on her molars right now and I keep getting blisters because she also wants to comfort nurse all afternoon!
