Feet Aching while nursing?!?
DD is 20 months now and since I can remember my feet ache as soon as DD starts nursing. BUt they also randomly hurt sometimes too. Has anyone experienced this?

That's really interesting ...

It might have to do with some acupressure points that relate back to other body parts ... ?Does it happen while nursing in a particular position? (maybe it's a low back thing).

Re: Feet Aching while nursing?!?
My feet don't ache when I'm actually nursing, but, it seems that when I am nursing (as in currently have a child who breastfeeds) my feet are achy in general. Does that make sense, lol? After DS was born my feet ached terribly for months. I don't remember exactly when it stopped, but it was at least 8-10 months after he was born. Like I would be hobbling out of bed in the morning. So weird. Then after DD2 was born, they started aching again, just as bad for several months. now she is almost 20 months, and they still ache a little. No hobbling, but there are these areas that are very sore all the time and slightly achy. I saw my doctor about it and she was clueless and had never heard of it. But then my SIL had a baby and for months afterward complained of sore achy feet. I have no idea but it's interesting that others are experiencing the same thing. I'm curious to see if it disappears altogether once DD stops nursing.

Yeah you make sense, I still wonder if it's a back thing. Like, the position you nurse in creates some back issues. Maybe see a chiropractor or an osteopath who does osteopathic manipulation?
