I have been breastfeeding for a little over thirteen months. I never thought I would breastfeed this long. I originally wanted to breastfeed for six months and then switch to formula but that didn't happen. I am so glad I have stuck with it for this long. It has been such a difficult struggle and just when I think it's getting easier something always happens. Evan recently puntured my nipple (tmi sorry) about two weeks ago. Worst pain ever!!! I always heard stories about babies biting their mothers and I never thought it would happen to me. From the beginning Medela Tender Care has always been a life savor. I only used it a couple times in the beginning because it works miracles. After Evan bit me I tried to let it heal on it's own, but every single time I would let Evan nurse it would just open the cut back up. At this point I was convinced that my breastfeeding days were over. Thank goodness my sister reminded me I had this nipple cream. Once I applied it by the next morning it was healed! I still waited another day to nurse Evan just to reassure that it was completely healed. If you are breastfeeding I highly recommend this product.
If this has ever happened to you please share your experience! I searched online but didn't find much help.
