Ugh - DS is one (today, actually) and I, for the first time after nursing two babies have some nipple damage. I know that I have been so lucky to not have had to deal with this before that, but now that I am, I'm not sure what to do. I have a few tiny scabs on the nipple and pain (comes in waves) after nursing. When I give the side with the damage a rest, it feels better, but tonight, for example. I nursed him at 7:30 and am still feeling pain one hour later . Any suggestions? I hate to just not nurse on the left side for a while for fear that it would significantly affect my milk production on that side.
Thanks for your help!
