I recently posted about my LO (8 mo) eating more frequently and 'chomping' down on me. Unfortunately my left side ended up damaged with a blood blister that I think I've been able to repair. He's not so much biting as his teeth are scraping because I don't think his mouth is open wide enough. Here's what I've done so far. Please let me know if there are any other tricks that I can try to avoid such a painful latch. I'm starting to pull away from him because of what I know is coming and I hate that. The good news is that the pain goes away while nursing but I don't want to make any more damage from here on out.
Moved nursing sessions to a quiet place to avoid 'tearing' off at a distraction
Used a warm compress and bm to heal the damage
Using olive oil to keep area moist
Pushing him into me to unlatch
Trying to teach him to 'open wide' but that's not working yet
