Nice Bandaids...

Yes, this may be considered a TMI for some, but I'm in major pain and I just HAVE to share!!
All weekend long, Jake has been teething and a few times has used me as his teether. Sunday after church, I was trying to nurse the boy and he bit down on me SO hard that it drew blood. There was blood on his face and in his mouth. I just about threw the kid across the room from instant pain. Instead I swatted the kid's mouth and said, "YOU DON'T BITE ME!!"
Yeah, I know....not the BEST way of handling the situation, but I reacted!
Needless to say the kid cried and cried for nearly a half hour straight. He was inconsolable!! I was pretty miserable!
Thankfully, my other son, who was more than willing to find me a bandaid for my "owie" went on the search. Instead I grabbed the breast pad and pressed on it. After a little while I pulled it off and noticed that it really soaked up the blood pretty well. Nice bandaid! ;)
Anyway, today I've been trying to pump on that side and let him nurse exclusively on the other side, but I was SO engorged that I just HAD to nurse him, just to relieve the pressure. Thankfully, his tooth broke through and he's not biting anymore. But I have a feeling it will take me a while to recover from this owie.

Oh, man!!! I hope you recover well and soon! Silly boy. Does he like bananas? Have you tried Frozen bananas? (maybe you already have...) (I never did, but they sounded like they would work for teething little babies. :) ) Good Luck!

OUCH!! Both my boys weaned right about the time they got teeth. But I know your little one got teeth early so that probably doesn't help you. Hope you heal quickly.

OUCH!! I feel your pain, and that's gotta hurt! I'm glad you were able to find something that works as a nice bandaid, though. :) I hope your owie gets feeling better soon.
