If you can nurse through this...

You can nurse through anything.

Two days ago I burned my right nipple to the extent that a huge blister formed and a big chunk of skin peeled off almost instantly, while I was boiling a huge pot of peanuts.

I thought I wasn't going to be able to nurse, like, ever again, because it hurt so bad. I stood in a freezing cold shower for over 15 minutes.

I took some Motrin and was nursing again in the scope of 2 hours. Half crying, through the pain. But it did get better.

Anyone else have any super-Mom nursing stories to share?

Momma! How in the world did you burn your nipple?!

My little guy bit through my nipple around 6-7 months of age...and I just nursed through it, blood and all. And am still nursing today!

I was boiling peanuts in a huge stockpot, and you have to put a plate on them otherwise they float on the surface, and I was trying to remove the plate from the pot while the water was still hot...

In retrospect, not the smartest thing to do.

Re: If you can nurse through this...

When I was in labor with my first, it was moving very slowly, my duola told to do nipple stimulation but, didnt tell not to use lotion or soap or anything. I know, I should have known. So I took a bath and used some bar soap just to help a little BIG MISTAKE. My nipples were cracked and dry before I even got to nurse Lexi for the first time, I just had to deal with it
Good luck with the burn

I nursed through 1 horrendous week of thrush unmedicated (thought it was a bad latch), and many weeks thereafter medicated. I'm sure it wasn't nearly as painful as what you experienced though.

I nursed thru a reallllllllllllllly long bout of mastitis/plugged ducts. It took me 5 months to finally get rid of both of those things.
