I think this might just be the beginning of teething, considering my LOs age, but I thought I should get another opinion on this.
We exclusively nursed for just short of 6 months, then started slowly introducing baby foods. We've been doing one a week, so we haven't done too many yet. Now, all of a sudden, we're having two problems, one with me, one with her. She's getting horrible, nasty diaper rashes every time she has a BM. I'm talking bleeding (just a little) diaper rashes even if it's only been a little bit since her BM. We're cding, so I've been using zinc oxide creams, which seem to help clear things up, but just until the next BM. Not good.
Second problem, I'm suddenly sore again, on both sides. I've been getting blisters, mostly on the right side (our 'easy' side). She's been popping off (literally! ouch!), wanting to nurse more often and for shorter lengths of time. I've been trying to make sure our latch is good, but it doesn't seem to be working too well, as I'm waking up in the morning sore (we co-sleep and she's been nursing once or twice a night, which is actually down from 2-3x per night).
We also just got over a cold. I don't know if that woud be helpful to know or not.
