The other day my baby boy bit my nipple while nursing. Every time I nurse him on that side now the pain is horrible, I keep going cause I want to continue breastfeeding him. I bought Lanolin but I want to know if this has happened to anyone else and if they have any tips on how to help! Thanks :)

TrY switching position like to a football hold to get the pressure of the tooth off the sore spot and consider asking your doctor to prescribe some of jack newmAns all purpose nipple ointment, which will help as it heals.

Thanks, but I couldn't find anything on tips for helping the pain...which isn't going away (and i'm sure someone has come up with something that helps). He's only bitten me once, so I'm not looking for tips on how to stop him.
