do nipples need to toughen up....again?
my lo is 7 months old and got his first tooth (on the bottom) about 3 weeks ago, I haven't had any problems until last night and all day today. My left nipple is getting sore, it was sore the three times he nursed in the night, all day in the pump and again now before bed, which was the worst. they are both a little red but only the left one hurts. he is not biting me b/c i have felt that and i just took him off my breast.
do i just need to get used to this or is there anything else i can do? i am going to soak them now in warm water and put lanolin on them both after which helped me a lot in the beginning. i would appreciate any other suggestions or ideas anyone has... thanks.
