I am a stupid, horrible mother. Let's just start off with that, because I'm quite aware.
I am currently breastfeeding my baby.
I have been gauging my ears out *very* slowly for a few years now.
I did it once while I was pregnant, and again a few days ago. I didn't even think about it, it's just something I'd been doing. It doesn't involve needles, so I didn't think of it as dangerous. (Yes, I know, I win mother of the year.)
This time is the first time I am having pain and inflammation in my earlobes. I have been cleaning them with hydrogen peroxide, but I want to know if there is a risk of passing infection to my baby while I'm nursing.
Please don't be too mean. I am already sick with guilt.

Next question overall
I'm 9 weeks pregnant with my second. Is it true that you start showing sooner?
