Leaking suddenly at 16 months?

My little girl barely eats solids (doing early intervention for swallowing issues of solids), and she does take some bottles of soy formula and we are happy with that, but mainly BF's still round the clock (reflux).....but suddenly she is nursing and super cranky at night but when I put her on to nurse, she really is not eating? She is waking a but more frequently again instead of the nice 2 hours we were getting she is back to almost every hour....(yet another issue), I would say she is teething molars and pointies, but she usually still pulls out Breast milk .....I woke up in the wee hours soaked and even after getting up this morning dripping.......why is she not removing milk? I have had scratchy sensitive nipples for a few days as well....fabric feels like sandpaper on them.....but that is the only odd thing. I do not think i am getting thrush ect....what could be going on? could this just be a more painful nursing issue with this particular tooth? She did cut 2 molars alraedy and she still was nursing well?

many toddlers have 'super' sessions and that can increase your supply. I think that is what is going on, rather than baby not eating enough. Does that make sense?

Gina had marathon nursing every night last week (She's 12 months and pretty much refuses all solids). It's brought me back to spontaneous letdown and leaking and stinking thrush. I am so sore all fabric hurts. Bleh! I know how you feel.

funny you should mention this.....I a either around 14-15 dpo (if I o'd) or 4-5 days past......I have yet to have my first ppaf! my nips are still super sensitive and i thought they were sore from her nursing clamped due to teething but now I a not so sure as it is getting worse and they are not irritated outwardly....can not see anything that would say thrush yet? I just took 2 Equates.....I thought I saw soething "try" to happen on the 1st so I took the second the addict that I am and I saw the same thing.....hmmmm ? Did you notice anything else when you fell preggo while BFing?

Honestly I was not even thinking that I could be pg because my 2 boys were born via IVF it was only in retorspect after I found out that I was pg that I thought that the sudden copious milk supply was a possible sign.
