Ideas for minimizing discomfort
I've been nursing continuously for over 4 years. Ordinarily, nursing is no problem. But 3 days ago a wayward fingernail scratched my breast right by my nipple. It's like an eighth of an inch and you can barely see it. I can feel it though. it's pretty excruciating to nurse. My son's nursing seems to keep it from healing. I think that the obvious thing might be to stop nursing but I don't care for that idea.
Can anyone make a suggestion for how to carry on? Thanks.
