Re: Nursing a Biter

He is doing it a little bit less, but I am still getting nipped a few times a day. On the positive side, I think my nipples are getting toughened up, because it is not hurting AS bad unless he really gets me good.

He will usually look up at me to see if I am paying attention before he bites now. If I catch him as he starts to sink in his teeth and warn him, he will usually stop and watch to see if I mean business or not...hehehe...he is a little stinker!

Re: Nursing a Biter

I know that lactation consultants will tell you not to yell when that happens, but several times when my son bit, I yelled "Ow" from surprise. It startled him so much that he stopped. Now, my daughter thought that reaction was funny, so it didn't help with her biting. It seems like they both just out-grew it with time, but that doesn't help much while it's happening.

Re: Nursing a Biter

i immediately react and show her i am in pain. i immediately pull her off and tell her that is not nice. i talk to her like i am talking to a child. she sometimes cry a little but is always more gentle after. babies react to our emotions. let them know it causes you pain.

Re: Nursing a Biter

My son started biting me at 1 1/2 and would smile. DROVE ME CRAZY!!! I wasn't ready to wean, but could not take the pain and so after trying everything I stopped. I felt bad about it and after 2 weeks decided to try again. I had a long "talk" with him (as much as you can with a 1 1/2 year old) and we tried nursing again. He bit me and gave me that same smile again after a day or so. At that point we had to stop cold turkey. We were both pretty upset about it, but I didn't know what else to do.

As he has gotten a bit older, I realized that he has impulsive tendencies that have gotten him into trouble in other areas of his life.
