Might be thrush. Check your daughter's mouth for a white film that doesn't wipe off easily. If it is thrush mom and baby are usually both infected. Is your daughter also fussy on the boob?

I had the exact same problem at about the same age.

That is an interesting theory - that I am about to get AF back.

Well the pp certainly hit on the same top three I was thinking of, pregnancy, AF, or thrush.

Well my nipple pain went away and a couple of days later (today) AF started.

I haven't looked back thru prior responses but do you know about the calcium/magnesium trick for combatting AF-related nipple pain?
