So, DS is getting his 4th tooth and he bit me a few weeks ago. I got a nasty gash on my left nipple. It became so painful that I started only nursing him on the right during the day and pumping the left. I still nurse on both sides at night (I guess I'm lazy!). But, the wound is still not healing!! Plus, yesterday I got so full and felt like I was getting clogged ducts. I puped for over 30 minutes and would NOT let down. Then I got majorly lightheaded. Maybe a hormone reaction? Finally, I just bit my lip and let him nurse on the left and the ducts cleared. WWYD with these issues?

Thanks for the link! The tooth poked through, so I hope we'll have a little teething break at least.
