So, for the last 4 days, although the nips have been sore, we've been doing great with feedings, some minor scabbing within the first two days but great since then.
Well, just finished a session and my nipple looks like a disaster zone. It looks like thin layers of skin are peeling off and there's what I thought was some form of bloody discharge but is actually part of my nipple which has apparently been chewed/sucked to bits. It almost looks like half the nipple is inside out.
I've been secreting a little extra milk to moisturize with and when it's really bad, use a dab of Motherlove nipple cream, but with this severity, should I be doing something else? Also, I'm sure this is going to hurt like a b*tch, but should I let LO still feed from it and deal with whatever pain that may cause or should I avoid that side til it's looking a little better?
