Why does my breast ache after I breastfeed my one-year-old?

I am eight months pregnant. I feel like the life is sucked out of me.

The pain is probably related to the combination of tenderness from pregnancy and the needs of your one year old. When my son was one, he was still nursing and drinking plenty of breastmilk. I would suggest offering supplemental liquids and cutting down on breastfeeding. You have your toddler and the developing little one taking a lot of your nutrients.

There could be a few things going on. You could simply be sore from your pregnancy, or your child's latch isn't right anymore.
