Help! Major pain!!

Hi everyone!

I am currently nursing my 4th baby. She is 9 months old and has nursed very well since she was born. I have never had any problems while bfing so I just don't know what is wrong. I am having major nipple pain when I nurse her on the right side only. It doesn't look like she is latching on wrong. I don't see any signs of thrush. Yesterday we both got fevers. Mine was quite mild and seemed to go away by itself (no meds) and my baby's was pretty low last night but this morning it was at 102degrees. I don't know if the fevers are related to the bfing issue. She doesn't seem to have any aversion to

Hmmmm, this is a tricky one. If you have a local LC, it might not hurt to have her look at things in person.

I'd definitely check in with the doctor. STart with the baby's ped and your primary care provider. they can give you guidance if anyone else needs to be involved. Hope you feel better soon.
