Bf has become really painful in recent weeks. H mainly feeds at night and is teething so I eondered if this has something to do with it but it's painful when he latches and also when he's not feeding if clothing touches my nipple. It doesn't look too bad but there is a tiny part which looks amost crusty although this comes and goes during the day. I'm using lanolin two to three times a day but does anyone have any other suggestions? Should I see the gp? I don't really want to stop feeding yet but I can't carry on with the pain for a lot longer

Is it both breasts? Are there white spots in his mouth, if so it could be thrush. Any chance you are pregnant again? This often causes painful feeding. I would see the GP if you can, because if it is something treatable they will be able to help you xxx

I was going to suggest thrush also, it's not always visible making it tricky to detect. I knew it was because My breasts contined to be sore after feeding and I had sharp shooting pains in them.

I've had the shooting pains so I wonder if it is thrush? No white spots though. And no def not pregnant , one is enough!!
What is the treatment for thrush?

Get it seen by a doc ASAP! You both need treated as the thrush can continue to pass between you if not. (Not all gp's know this) It's cream for your nipples and I got gel for F's mouth. I used them for about 10 days. Hope it clears quickly!

Also echo thrush - you can get it without white spots being visible. Hope it clears up quick!
