So, I have nursed for 9 months this time and 11 months with my last child...and I have never had this happen.
When DS nurses, I get a weird tingly-burning sensation on the underside of the nipple. It's there when he is not nursing, but it hurts more when he is eating. Thankfully, he is quick and I can get through a whole nursing session. But it like, makes me want to tighten my belly, and is almost like a pins-and-needles sensation. WTH?
Any ideas? I don't see anything odd about the nipple at all. And I would blame it on teeth (he has his bottom two) if it didn't hang around even though he wasnt nursing.
Its only one side, but we only single-side nurse....so I don't know that it will tell you anything.
Hmmm. Three votes for thrush. I guess I will be calling the doc. It does feel like glass in there. And I don't see anything in kierans mouth, so maybe he doesn't have it (fingers crossed). Do I take antibiotics? Or can I treat it myself somehow? I guess I have some reading to do.
I truly had no clue what it could have been. Thrush would not have crossed my mind, since I hear about it with little babies but never older ones.
