My 9mo DD nurses to sleep, and recently she has needed to hang on for a long time before she will let me unlatch her or unlatch herself. I don't mind this, and it has happened before when she is teething or otherwise needs her mommy more.
However, now she has 8 teeth, and sometimes during this extended, sleepy latch time, she clamps down really hard and I almost can't get her off. I have to pry her mouth open, all the while her teeth are IN my nipple. It's really painful. I can feel her start to do this, and I try to gently do the Pantley Pull Off or something but she either jerks awake or fully clamps down and we start again. Other times she has a normal, relaxed mouth. I don't know what makes the difference.
Anyone BTDT? Any advice, short of, don't nurse to sleep? (She will fall asleep in the Ergo, but it's quicker to nurse).
