Breast Hurts While Feeding


While feeding my son, why does my breast hurt? It feels like my arm or muscles are being pulled while he eats. Is that a normal feelng?



This is most likely due to your let down reflex, which release the milk from where it's stored in your breast and allows it to flow out of your nipples. This is completely normal and not something to worry about. For some moms it goes away with time, but some moms can always feel their let down.
