My dd has caused deep tissue bruises on my nipples, so she's going to take a bottle whether she wants to or not! still breastmilk, i have some stored and the pump is bearable, her nursing makes me want to cry. My doc says if i want the bruising to heal I have to give my breasts a break. Do you ladies have any suggestions on how to help her take a bottle or sippy cup for more than an ounce? Suggestions on how to help my nipples heal are also welcome :)

How old is she?
You could try soothing her gums with something cool before nursing. Have you tried a different nursing position? Does she bite at the beginning or end of a feed?
