I am looking for advice from mamas who have/had AGGRESSIVE baby biting while bf. I am currently bf my third baby. Who at 7 mos. has his two front teeth and more popping up. So, with my first two I encountered the whole biting while feeding situation and was able to resolve it. This child is more difficult. He isn't just nipping but biting and locking on and then yanking back! He has broken the skin on my nipples a couple of times causing me to bleed. I have been using my lanolin, helps to heal but not with the pain. My nipples hurt so much I am beginning to dread bf. I have been trying all the usual tricks to stop this but he doesn't get it AT ALL!!!! I am beginning to wonder if I can continue bf as he gets more teeth, he is vicious with these pearly whites of his! Need some nipple armor!!!
