I have been exclusively pumping since the 1 month mark because of some issues (DD is 3 months now) and the nursing hurt at first, then got better the further along I got. When I started pumping it didnt really bother me. Now I am 3 months in and this past week I have been in so much pain when I pump. My nipples hurt so so bad during and after I pump. And then I get very sharp but short pains in either breast just randomly thoughout the day. I have tried everything I tried at first like the lanolin and gel cooling pads, I can't seem to make it better and I just want to give up!
