I love breastfeeding my 9 mth old, I could never do it with my first boy as it was too painful but upto now its all been going well until he punctured my right side. How do I heal it I have been expressing that side and putting a few different creams but the swelling wont' go down, its very sore. Please give me ideas or tips on what works for you so I can keep up with the feeding.

Breastfeeding and Teeth!

Go & see a Doctor, it may be infected. Keep up with the painkillers & expressing though, but I'd definitely be seeing a Doctor to get it checked out - there could be an abscess underneath or something.
My dd has 8 teeth and although she has bitten me she hasn't drawn blood. She is more likely to bite in the couple of days before AF comes (talk about rubbing it in!) or when she's finished and she's 'play feeding'.

definately go and see the dr! my 8 month dd did this recently and it was so painful and i called the ABA who told me to go to dr and yup was infected a(even though it didn't 'look' infected) and had to have antibiotics.
i just expressed what i could to give it a little time to heal and then once it was better just fed more to boost up the supply again on that side.
i feel for you tho - it was sooo painful!
