My dd just bit me hard. Anything I should do?

My 9mo old dd was just nursting and bit me so hard she cut me pretty deep on my nipple and made a pretty deep gash. She made me draw blood. What can I put on it so that it doesn't get infected & is safe for her? Sorry if this is TMI but I don't want it to get infected.
Thanks.

mama, I am so sorry she bit you. I don't know what to do about the gash, but it seems like you found an answer. I just want to send you a virtual and let you know I know how you feel. DS went thru a stage about 2 monthes ago where it felt like he was grinding my ni**le with his teeth- not fun. hope it gets better!

Thanks mama. I am just going to put some neosporin on it with a band aide & hopefully it will heal quickly..that is what my gut told me anyway, but I just wanted to double check with someone who had been there. Ya know?

I read somewhere the best thing to do in that situation is to put them down immediately after they do it. They'll cry, but they'll get it.

Does anyone know if this works?

Dd is biting and she doesn't even have teeth yet, so I can only imagine how much more it will hurt once she does. I flick her cheek and firmly say NO, then put her down and turn my back to her for a few minutes. Hopefully she will get it by the time she has teeth to do some real damage. As far as what to put on the cut, your own expressed breastmilk will heal it very fast and is antibiotic, and of course safe for baby.

9 month old DS bites me to let me know he's finished!!! So putting him down is what he wants, bah! I can sympathize with you all! Sounds like maybe it's a 9 month old thing??
