Hi, I am breastfeeding an almost 2 year, first and last thing each day. Last night my breast started to hurt alot, kind of like in the beginning of breastfeeding or during pregnancy, also my nipple burns when he nurses. My breast feels much heavier than normal but he nurses just long as he normally does. Any ideas as to the sudden change or suggestions to deal with the soreness?

Since you mention like "during pregnancy" I'm guessing that you don't believe yourself to be pregnant. That was going to be my first suggestion when I read the opening line here.

Thrush???? I know he's older and thrush seems to happen when baby is younger, but it's possible at any time. More likely if you've taken an antibiotic recently.

Or: it could be just some sort of hormonal change in you. Do you get sore each month when your period comes around?
