My right breast has started to get aches every now and then. Should I be concerned?

Did you treat yourself for thrush also? If your baby has/had thrush, you need to treat baby and yourself.

My son is 5 weeks. And he is just about done with his medicine for thrush. I was wearing a bra with an underwire, I didn't know that they were bad to wear! I haven't noticed any lumps and it is just random aches, so maybe it is just the bra. I'll try a new one. Thank you!

How old is your baby? Does this happen while you are feeding your baby, or just randomly throughout the day - I'm thinking hmmm, could this be the beginning of a thrush infection? Do you have any hard spots/lumps - could be a sign of a plugged duct. What type of bra are you wearing? Anything with and underwire is not advised during breastfeeding... can lead to plugged ducts and mastitis.

If it's just a general ache every now and then - nothing else out of the ordinary going on... you might just be noticing a let down or??????. Keep tabs on it, but I wouldn't be too concerned. Hormones during pregnancy and during breastfeeding do all kinds of fun things to us... including breast tenderness and aches.
