I am not breastfeeding (long story -- not even going there! (but hopefully shouldn't even need to)).
My milk came in around day 4 or 5 (Ouch!). Wore a tight bra, left them the heck alone, and things subsided around day 7 or 8.
I get a couple of days where my boobs are 100% normal for my non-pregnant self.
Now, for about 2 days, I've have this terrible stinging and burning sensation in my nipples/areola and the skin around it in both boobs. It feels almost like a "contraction" coming on, and one boob starts to ache and sting, and then a few seconds later the other boob chimes in and does the same thing. It feels similiar to the engorgement pain but different. It's sort of hard to describe. It burns and stings and a minute or two later, it passes and I'm "normal" again.
I had NOTHING like this with my first. Ant non-breastfeeding or previous weaning mammas have something like this happen to them???
Does this warrant a call to the doc, or is this normal?
