HELP sore nips

my baby is 8 months old and teething EEK!!! He basically uses my stuff as a chew toy. My nips are extremely sore, I've been putting lanolin, but the pain is unbearable. Advice? And possibly some ways to break the habit of bubs chewing away my boobs?

  • Have him chew on something before nursing and as soon as he is finished pop him off, they are more likely to bite when they are finished and get bored and start playing around. Also firmly say "no" and if biting continues, end the nursing session. Other than that if your nipples are too sore to nurse you can pump and give bottles for a few feedings to give them a rest. HTH
