Having so much trouble breastfeeding

Tomi - posted on 05/02/2016 ( no moms have responded yet )




I have a7 month old son who I have breastfed up until about 5 months I started supplementing formula. I was still breastfeeding at night and in the morning tho. But about 1 month ago he was feeding at night, chomped down an jerked his head and put a deep tear alongside my nipple. It was so deep it was bleeding. The same thing happened on the other side, just not as deep. Now every time he feeds it opens the tears back up and the pain is intense. I try to wait 3 or 4 days in between feedings to let myself heal up but it doesn't seem to help. Has anybody else been through this? I don't want to stop breastfeeding because that is our time together, but I need to find a way to heal up before my milk dries up. Does anybody have any advice what I can do?
