pulling sensation while breastfeeding

just when breastfeeding was becoming less painful!!!!! at almost 3 weeks pp I was still having some pain when my son would latch on due to cracked nipples but after he started I wouldn't be in pain. now all of a sudden during the whole feed I have this annoying, uncomfortable and slightly painful pulling feeling through my entire breast. ugghh has anyone experienced this? is it normal?

Have you been on antibiotics by chance? I was and it caused thrush in my boob and that's what it felt like, it also caused burning nipples and pain after feedings

I was on antibiotics daily for almost half of the pregnancy due to frequent uti and kidney infection that hospitalized me. I thought of that also but haven't had any burning or white on nipples or in babys mouth.

I would def call your dr! I didn't have any white on my nipples or in my babies mouth, but it still could be thrush and you'll need medicine for it..mine got really bad and it was horribly painful!
