Pregnant and breastfeeding.

Has anyone on here been pregnant while breastfeeding? Were your nipples REALLY sore?

My sister breastfed all through her second pregnancy.  No problem with the nipples.

Oh god I have and my nipples were sooooo sore, it felt like hot needles going into them, I managed to breastfeed until I was 12 wks then couldnt handle it anymore, my 2yr old used to ask me if he was hurting me when he used to jump on as I used to scrunch up my face in pain :)

If your having pain in your nipples like shooting pain or pins and needles it could be a yeast infection in your breasts.

I've had a couple in the last 14M of breastfeeding. It's painful but with treatment clears right up

Call your Dr.
