Chest pain: There are many possible causes for rib pains. If you are breast feeding I might be concerned for potentially developing mastitis. It could also be pulled muscles from holding baby or something more serious with your heart or lungs. If it continues after rest, taking Tylenol or ibprofen, heating pad OR if you have a temperature over 100 degrees F, go to your doctor for an exam
