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.
