Breast feeding- newborn stretching the nipples

My baby boy is 4 weeks old tomorrow. He tends to stretch out both of my nipples after a few minutes of feeding. Any ideas why? He seems to be latched properly, but will then draw back his head away from my breast with my nipple in his mouth as if he's trying to stretch it out. Anyone else have this issue? Thanks :)

Both my daughter's did that the entire time I breastfed. My first daughter breastfed for 14 months and I'm currently breastfeeding my 6month old. You get used to it and it becomes less and less painful. I'm guessing they get more milk out by doing that.
