Sore breast

My breast has been sore since Monday. I breast feed exclusively and up to now have had very few problems. My son seems to be pulling very hard on my nipples and pushing on my breast with his hand. When I stop him from pushing he stops eating and cries until I let him do it again. Does anyone have any ideas about what I can do about it? He has been eating this way for a long time but it never hurt before. Thanks!

I think he is getting teeth, you're right. Great advice, I will call the breastfeeding clinic. Thanks!

how old is your son? and some babies do the pulling and tugging on breasts to help build the milk supply, like kittens do to mom cat, like kneading(sp). he could be getting teeth, depending on his age? Do you have a local health dept or place with Lactation consultants?
