thanks so mich ladies for all your advice and support through this!! it really means alot and it has lifted my spirits. sorry that you all had to go through that though!! hugs to the ladies still going through it, its tough and it bloody hurts!!
i have a couple of big gashes in my nipple now and its gone a bit pussy and now my whole breast hurts and not just the nipple sk i think it might be the start of an infection or something. have started using lansinoh on it so hopefully that will heal things (will try the water and bicarb too)

Re: feeling really upset and need encouragement to continue
My ds has gone through a few biting stages,
8-10 months the worst (teething)
I used to sit with my pinky near his mouth to remove him when he started to bite down (and firmly say NO! NO BITING)
if i didn't get him off quick enough as he bit down i would push his face into the boob which would force him to delatch and pull back to breath (he didn't like it & he did cry).
A couple of times i did react by smacking him on the leg (note while this did work in stopping that bite i do not promote smacking 8-10 month olds),
Eventually he stopped, i was highly stressed as a result but i quickly learned his 'about to bite ' signs (begin of nursing before let down, halfway through when falling asleeo and at the end mostly)
I would bonjella his gums before every single feed and wait for the bite,
i.also used paw paw cream instead of lanisoh as lanisoh *can* make cracks worse
He's 2yr 4 m now & i still use paw paw cream if we have a bad nursing session
