My DS has his 2 bottom teeth in and is now working actively on his top ones. He's only bit me hard once, but tends to nibble a bit when he pulls off or first latches on. I've had quite a bit of pain in one of my breasts when I feed him. I've talked to 2 lactation consultants about the possibility of a yeast infection, so I'm getting some cream for that, although we all tend to be in agreement that isn't probably the real problem, it's probably the irritation from teething.
I'm just a little concerened because I've been lucky to have so few problems with BFing until now, and now that I'm reaching my goal of 6 months, I'm also at the point of trying to figure out where we go from here. Logistically, I am so ready to stop BFing (pumping has become a bit of a pain), but emotionally, I don't think either me or my baby are ready to wean. So, hopefully, this won't push me over the edge.
just had to vent a little....
