Two weeks ago, DD cut her 4 top teeth in the span of 48 hours. They have been getting longer, and for the last few days I feel them when she nurses. It makes me tender, almost painful.
I don't think it is a latch issue. She has had a good latch from birth. But, she is a really strong nurser. It almost feels like being on a pump turned to high. To me it looks like that when she sucks, her tongue lift a bit, and that bring the top of the mouthful of breast onto her top chisels.
I've tried to unlatch and relatch. I've also held my breast with the nipple pointing up a bit. DS had a bad latch the whole time I nurse him, and not to get sore, I use to hold my breast like that to help him keep a proper latch.
I don't know what else to do. I think the issue is in the vigor of her nursing, that remains regardless of how hungry she is.
Did any one else run into problems when the top teeth came out?
