DON'T BE FOOLED! THIS LITTLE DUCKLING HAS TEETH!
Goodness! Exclusively breastfeeding is taking the best of me. I am both nursing a baby and a swollen left nipple.
Zander bit it so hard the other day and locked on it for more than a few seconds. I knew better than to pull him away from the breast. I pinched his nose, but he breathed through his mouth, with a nipple in between his teeth. Naughty little boy.
It's so painful I can't even use a hand pump. I'm now manually expressing milk by hand, straight to the bottle. I honestly feel like a cow being milked. Except that I'm milking myself.
How am I holding up? Pretty well, I think. I was forced to let Zan feed on my left the other night even if it was painful as hell since I was just too sleepy to get up and pump. It became numb after a few minutes anyway and we both slept well after. Plus, I didn't want to get up and go outside looking like I just had my right breast removed overnight because it's flat from overfeeding.
