My ds is 6 months old & about two weeks ago he got his bottom 2 teeth, which at the time I thought was really cute. Well, within the past 2-3 days he has starting biting me...& since I br___tfeed this is becoming quite a problem!! I love BFing him, but now everytime I feed him I get so tense because I am just waiting for him to chomp down, & when he does, boy does it hurt!!! I don't want to stop BFing, but this is awful...any advice?? Please help...thanks!

Ok so I went through this exact problem and the one thing that you have to do is stop feeding him once he bites. I mean don't reprimand him and then continue. He has got to learn that it is not ok for him to bite mommy. So you firmly tell him no and take him off of your b___st and put him down somewhere and walk away. What I did is not feed her for one day off of me, I put her on the bottle and SHE HATED IT! I mean she screamed and cried but I was terrified of her teeth on me. It worked, she has not bitten me since and she has 7 teeth. Be consistent and be firm, if he doesn't get taught now he will never understand that it hurts and who's to say he might do some damage to you, good luck.
