    Default Ouch

    So I knew at some point, my nursing daughter would use those new pearly whites! She clamped down on my nipples today, yes, both of them, and they are on fire! What is a good remedy for the pain? Thanks

    IKWYM!
    i had to be a bit of a mind reader to avoid getting bitten.
    I had to watch for cues that my LO was done nursing, or about to play with her new teeth on my nipple.
    The first time I was bitten I yelped, My LO wailed with real tears streaming down her cheeks,
    we both were sorry for what had happened.

    To heal your nipples, I would recommend using some kind of ointment, like lanolin ointment or if you have an open wound, bacitracin or polysporin ointment.
