Bitten!

My almost one year old just bit a hole in my nipple! Aghh! So... What do I do? I can't nurse her on that side right now because it hurts too bad. How long will it take to heal enough to nurse again? Anything I can do to speed healing? And if I take a break from that side for a little while, won't that affect supply?

Help me! :/

I would give it an hour or 2. It should feel much better. I've had my fair share nursing for the last 8 years straight

It can affect supply if you stop for too long.

Re: Bitten!

I'm sorry, mama. My DD took out a good chunk not too long ago. Surprisingly, after a few hours, it actually felt better when she was nursing.

I would do moist wound healing. It ain't heal fast if it dries out then gets wet again (nursing). Can you try a cotton ball soaked in saline solution or coconut oil left in your bra on the wound?
