It could be thrush or teething. Or your baby might be being a bit more rough than usual. You could try tapering down feeds on the painful side and feed more on the non hurt side. But be careful if you have any supply issues.

Aslo, if you are pregnant, it can make the nipples hurt. If there is a chance on pregnancy (meaning you've been active) then it doesn't hurt to take a test.

I that feeling but it also felt like someone was sawing through my boob with a rusty knife. Turned out to be a cut on my nipple. Lol
