People have warned me about it, but I think if your kid doesn't chew on you with no teeth, what is going to change with teeth?
DD hasn't bit me yet, but she's only had teeth for 3 days or so.
I think what I'll do is if she does bite me is unlatch and finish the bfing session then and there.
Well, I guess I'll share my horror story since no one else has one. I actually had to stop bf DS1 at 8 months because he bit me so hard my nip bled for a day. I couldn't even pump that side because it kept bleeding. I had to stop pumping for that day and then the next day I was able to without it bleeding. Obviously I was quite lopsided and uncomfortable until I could pump again.
This was not the first time he bit me but it was the first time it bled. He had about 8 teeth at the time. I had tried telling him No but he didn't get it. I decided it was time to stop bf. At this point nursing was so stressful because I was constantly fearing a bite. DS didn't seem to mind stopping either. I did continue to pump for 4 months but after a month of exclusively pumping my supply tanked and I had to supplement. It was fine.
DS2 just starting popping teeth on the bottom. :( He's already bit me a couple times but I can sense when it's going to happen and get my finger in there to stop it. It's usually when he's falling asleep.
