Pain breastfeeding 8 month old lo- any ideas?

Hi all,

My nipples have started to feel sore breastfeeding my baby boy, he is 8 months old and aside from the initial pain breastfeeding when he was a newborn I have had no issues. They feel a bit chaffed and sore. He is teething but not biting me! And he has had teeth for a couple of months now, it's only on the last few days I have had pain. Had to start using my lansinoh again. Latch looks fine, I haven't changed anything, and I can't see any signs of thrush on me or my lo, I have even done a pregnancy test but it has come back negative.

Has anyone had a similar problem? Any ideas as to what might be causing this?
