burning sensation in b**bs. M+1 1 child; Ballarat, Australia 1551 posts

i'm breastfeeding and have felt a burning/stabbing sort of pain in one of my b**bs lol. whenever my boy feeds, my nipples hurt as well which they never did for the first week of having him. (he's 2weeks old today) it feels like someone's almost pinching them. he doesn't have latching problems either.



i don't know if it could be a 'yeast infection' or something else?



also, whenever he is feeding my milk comes out super fast and he gets extremely mad/fussy. i've tried pumping (but not much comes out)

Look on the breast that hurts, and see if you find a red, sore spot.



I found that on my right one when Asher was 2 or 3 weeks old I think. I had Mastisis, but it went away on it's own after a few days. I had on and off fever, and my right b**b hurt and was red.

This would happen to me when ever my milk would drop with my first two.

Sounds like engorgement then, your b**bs will regulate themselves.
