Happy world breastfeeding week to us! Lol

My almost 14 month old bit me hard a week ago. It was one of those lovely techniques where they bite and yank their head back, trying to take you with them. It hurt horribly and I was sore the rest of the day, but I was fine Saturday. Sunday, I noticed it hurt a LOT to nurse on that side. And it's been wicked painful since then. I have a crack on the bottom side of my nipple and it's not healing at all. Matter of fact, it actually looked worse this morning. I'm starting to get worried that it should be healing by now? I'm out of town for the month, so if I need to be seen, I have to go to an urgent care facility. Cause for concern or normal healing time?

Re: Cracked nipple

Have you tried putting anything on it? Like Neosporin or something, and then wiping it off before nursing? A weeks does seem like kind of a long time for it not be be healing, but I imagine nursing might keep injuring it a little. Don't ya just love when they bite? Argh!

I've tried CJ's butter and breast milk. I'll give neosporin a try! It's still not closing at all

Re: Cracked nipple

I used a little neosporin on mine early on when I got a bad crack. Hope it gets better soon! Sounds terrible! My DS is 8 mos. and has 6 teeth already. So far he hasn't gotten me too badly, but I fear the day!
