Great news for me! The injured nipple is healed and back in use! As of our 4am feeding today, I've been able to nurse without issue on that side. What a relief. Breast feeding is so much easier with both breasts, it's amazing how different I feel. I hated feeling like I wasn't giving him enough milk, and having to warm up bottles of breast milk over a silly injury like that. We did what needed to be done, and now I have even more appreciation for what we are doing.
Now I need to get my supply back up on that side. I was trying to keep demand up with pumping, but as of yesterday morning I could tell that it wasn't enough. We have some Mother's milk tea now, which I will start drinking in the morning. Cross your fingers!
