Ouch

I think we might be ending breastfeeding. She is killing me and it feels like she is just knawing at the the nipple.

So thankful I pump so much that I should still be able to make it to a year.

Ugh, sorry to hear that! It can be really uncomfortable and I remember specifically with DS2 he changed his latch at about 9 months (I think it was about a month before a tooth emerged) making BFing really uncomfortable. I had sore bb's and would even get raw and scab again. It was really annoying b/c I thought that should only happen at the beginning. Sad

I hope you find the best solution for you both. It sounds like exclusively pumping could really work though. :bighug:

I think that it is the teething that is causing it. I'm still going to try for at least one session a day, but we'll see how that goes.
