Bloody Bloody Ouch

"I am a vampire
I am a vampire
I am a vampire
I am a vampire
I am a vampire
I am a vampire
I have lost my fangs

I am a vampire
I am a vampire
I am a vampire
I have lost my fangs"

92 points to whoever can guess the movie this song comes from - without using Google.

Yesterday, even though I mostly pumped all day (I was on the road), I developed a bit of blood (just a speck, really) on one nipple. Nursing on that side hurts (obviously). Yum. Do I still nurse on that side? Should I skip that side and just pump? Can I keep the milk?

Blood. Yum.

I don't know what the "right" answer is, but I remember when that happened to me I just quit nursing on that side until they healed and only pumped, otherwise it will scab up and keep getting broken open again. If that doesn't work for you, then just use lots and lots of that lanolin stuff on it. Oh, and the milk is fine if there is a little blood in it.

I don't know what movie that is.

my 2 cents:
the milk should be fine (unless you have a blood born disease).

keep your nipple clean and dry between nursings.

If it won't heal, check with a doctor/nurse/LC on what to do.

Stac - It's Juno. You really should watch it, especially as a high school mommy. And then you should watch and discuss it with Brendan. It's not about vampires, though.
