I’ve heard you should pull baby into you even though the gut reaction is to pull away.  If you pull baby into you, supposedly it forces their jaw open a litte wider or makes it uncomfortable for them to nurse so they stop biting to change what they are doing or something to that effect.  We aren’t there yet but I’m not looking forward to it.

I had this problem with new teeth at first.  What we did was gently detach her and say “No, no more milk.  All done.”  She wouldn’t get any milk for a while after that.  I didn’t think it would work, but it only happened about about 5 times before she figured it out.

I’ve heard of mother’s gentling flicking bubs on the cheek when they bite – they don’t flick so it hard it hurts but just enough that baby gets the idea that nibbling isn’t cool!

Ouchie! DS was a biter too! By 6 months he had 2 teeth with the top two cutting and he thought biting things was a great game. So I had to stop breastfeeding ๐Ÿ™ I really wanted to Boyfriend or Best Friend until he was one but the biting just made it unbearable. He was such a great breastfeeder too, we had no problems at all and I had a ton of milk, I was so upset and disappointed.

I hope you find a solution! Ask your doctor or a lactacion consultant for tips maybe?

I know some people really don’t like the idea of these but they have nipple shields you can use for exactly this. But like I said, I know a lot of people have problems with putting something between mom and baby.

I could not deal with the pull closer technique either… Luckily the delatch and remove worked pretty well.  I found if I pushed in, she’d just mash down more.

Bite her back. ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe when she starts to wind down detach her before she has a chance to nip you.
