Monday night my 7 month bit me & broke the skin. @ the time I didnt know it, but it started to hurt yesterday. Now it looks like its getting infected. I've been soaking it in baking soda/water after each nurse on that side, but not healing.... Any suggestions?

You can use your own breast milk to heal it. After nursing squeeze out a little extra milk and rub it in (with clean hands). Allow it to air dry and then put on some lanolin.
