My 17-month-old just cut her top two teeth (late, I know). She often nurses to sleep, and I'm used to slipping my nipple out of her mouth after she dozes but before she's in a dead sleep. Now when I do that, I get a wicked nipple scrape! OUCH. I can't sleep while she nurses, though, so this is a big deal. She wakes a zillion times a night, and I would just not get ANY sleep if I stayed up until she was asleep enough to let go on her own. I need to be able to unlatch her. I tried sticking my finger between her gums, and it woke her up. What do I do? Until now I've just put a little downward pressure on my areola to pop her off, but now that's resulting in injury. HELP!
