When Tayden was around 7-8 months old we had a little spell where she bit me for a week or so. At that time I did all the things I'd read to do to have her stop biting and they seemed to work and we havent had a problem with it again. At that age she only had 2 bottom teeth so while it did hurt, it wasnt terrible.
Well last night she bit me again...only now she has three bottom and four top teeth...and it KILLED! I bled quite a bit and there is a cut from her tooth right on my nipple near the end. I am afraid to nurse her from that side today so I thought I'd just pump...well pumping is painful as well and everytime I pump it starts bleeding again.
I would try some neosporin on it b/w nursings... nad nurse just enough to relieve any fullness & pressure. her nursing is probably going to be a lot less painful than the pump, as long as she doesnt bite. Just remind her, no biting, and that it hurts mommy. She likely wont do it again - we had a similar csituation and after i really got startled that once, it never happened again. (her little bites didnt prompt quite the same reaction out of me).
