I get that too cept it feels like my uterus is tightening up my son is 3 weeks. After I pump it feels like a workout out down there lol. Or after a good feeding too. My aunt told me that bf moves everything back into place.

Breastfeeding causes uterine contractions.  When your uterus goes back down to it's normal size,  you'll stop feeling the pain.  For me,  that only took a few days.  I'm not sure how long it takes for most women.  Hopefully some of the other women on here will share so you can have a better idea of how long to expect to feel it.  Congrats on the baby and good for you for breastfeeding =)
