The nurses and lactation consultant told me it would feel like a tingly warm sensation but to me it is very painful. I tell DH it held like a large needle or rod is being shoved through my nipple and it almost makes me want to cry. I do have a pretty fast let down so not sure if that's why it's painful.
What does everyone else experience?

It hurts when Ellianna latches on. It stops within a few seconds, so I know that she has a good latch (and I am not getting sore - so that it good). I just know that the first 2-5 seconds will be a sharp pain. I do not think that is the let down though. When I am full and she is sleeping, there are times I get let down which is like sharp pins and needles. If possible, I pump then. It happened yesterday morning, and I pumped 6 ounces out of one breast - so I was really full. Of course she did not sleep AT ALL last night, so there is nothing left this morning.

It is also painful here, but not unbearable and it usually happens if i hear her fussing or crying. It only lasts for a few seconds and then I must feed her lol

I find it painful if I am having an extra one. Or I really need to nurse her but she is having an extra long nap. You will stop feeling them (at least I did) as time goes on.

Mine is very strong and uncomfortable. I usually feel it in both sides, regardless of which side she is nursing on. If she naps for too long or doesn't completely empty me at a feeding, I will feel it even if I'm not in the same room as her.
