I'm tandeming my almost 4 yr old and my 9 month old. I really want to keep going and let my DS decide when he's ready to wean but it is hurting when he nurses. I don't know why. When he finishes nursing there are big, deep teeth marks in my breast that stay there for a long time. He isn't biting. I really think it's just that his jaw is strong and he can suck pretty hard and his mouth is bigger and he has to pull my nipple in further to nurse. I find myself limiting him more and more which is hard because he wants to nurse a lot. If we are at home he nurses many times a day and usually wakes up at least once or twice to nurse at night. I'd love some advice or some encouragement to keep going.
