Breastfeeding-related question for the mamas reading this:
Last night Aiden gave me a good hard chomp (I think by accident, both of us were mostly asleep). Since then feeding him on that side has been intensely painful, and there's a tiny white blister on the nipple. I gave that breast a break for the morning. Just fed him again from it, and while it's a little better, it's still hurting quite a bit.

Should I stop feeding entirely from that side until it's better? Or just pump from it to keep the milk supply even? Or grin and bear it as long as it's not actively oozing anything other than milk?
