I had this burning feeling in my breasts when my milk would come in a couple weeks after my baby was born. She was nursing well, but it was really painful for me. I ended up pumping a little in between feeding to reduce the pressure and that seemed to help. We've been fine since then...up until two days ago. The pain is back, and my 3 month old waking up in the middle of the night more often to eat. I'm thinking my milk supply is increasing as she is entering a growth spurt. Has anyone else experienced this burning sensation, and what did you do to help it go away? I'm afraid to try anything because I want to make sure she's getting enough at feedings.
