DD has one little tiny mega sharp tooth .... And she keeps biting me while I nurse her. It's sooooo painfull. What can I do to stop her from biting ??

Re: Biting whilst nursing

  • Say "Ow! No biting!" and put her down for a few minutes. She'll likely get upset, but she should catch on.

  • I second putting her down.

    Every time she bites, unlatch and set her down for a minute or so.

    But really, try everything you have to until it sticks. Those teeth hurt!

  • My DD has 8 teeth.  I understand your pain!  The 1st time she bit, I squealed and she thought that was funny.  So of course she did it again.  The next time I said, "no bite" and sat her down.  I did this for probably about 1-2 weeks.  One time she bit me so hard she broke skin.  I had to pump on that side for a few days because it hurt too much to have her nurse.  She hasn't bitten me since then.

    Yes so today I was really "strict " with her ... In my own interest . Let's see where it gets me to
  • Agreed with the "No biting!" and pulling off. @holly142, my DS is working on cutting his 7th and 8th teeth too! Never did I ever think my little (almost) 8 month old would have so many teeth this early!

  • @bee .Goodness me 8 teeth . That must be a torture for you
  • What pp said. My dd didn't bite, only 2 teeth. But I have heard others swear by saying no and stopping the feeding session.

  • Mine had 7 teeth when he first bit. Bit me twice on the same side, broke skin... It was terrible. However, it was a wakeup call to me that that side (right) wasn't producing nearly enough/as much as the left side. I got my supply back up on that side before I tried nursing again, ha. Hasn't happened since.

    O wow , I would have NEVER thought that it means to little milk in that side. I know and how do I know that it hurts , but it's kind off cute
