For the last 2 months I have been dealing with painful cuts on my areolas from my 21 mo dd's teeth - or so I was told by my CNM at my annual exam last week. The cuts kind of heal/scab over and then the scab comes off due to bf. CNM told me to try to reposition dd, but I am having no luck with that. BF goes from okay to incredibly painful depending on where her teeth land/how hard she sucks.
I ended up night weaning her really quickly (almost cold turkey from midnight to 6 a.m.) a few weeks ago because I thought that time off from bf might heal the cuts, and it helped a bit, but they are still not healed. And now dd wants to nurse more than ever during the day.
BTW - dd is my second child. I bf my ds until he was 3 1/2 - tandem nursing included - and had no problem at all with these kind of cuts.
