07:39 am: so why does HE have the boo-boo face?
Teddy bit my nipple last night, drawing blood, and it really, really hurt. To protect myself until it heals (and to keep the blood off my PJs), I put a band-aid on it (woo! now I can run the marathon!).

The funny thing is, Teddy's the one who was really upset about it. I yelled, but he cried. And when I was nursing him before bed, he kept sitting up, lifting my top, fussing at the band-aid and asking what was going on ("daddydaddydaddy?"). He'd give up after a little while, and go back to the other breast, but inevitably he would sit back up again and give it another try. He really, really wanted to nurse from that breast.

I tried nursing him from that side again this morning, and it hurt something wicked. So I expressed milk in the shower (the idea of putting a pump on it is absolutely appalling). I may have a boobinal explosion today, however.

Stay tuned to this space for updates. The potential for public embarrassment (mine) seems high. So of course I'll blog about it.

Yowza. Sorry to hear about the biting incident. I have been bitten many times (with all of Nicolas' two bottom teeth) and I know how much it hurts. Luckily, he has not yet drawn blood and the biting seems to have settled down for a bit. At least for now. Pumping sucks anyway, never mind with an injured nipple! Hope it heals up quickly...

Thanks. It's getting better already. The night-time weaning process has slowed down a bit as a result, because I can only stand his nursing on that side for a few minutes, so he can't really tank up.

Soon enough, I suppose.

I hope Nicolas is all better! Before you know it, he'll have top and bottom teeth, and you can become the Paranoid Mommy that I am. w00t. ;)
