Ds just cut his first 2 teeth on the bottom, at first we didn't have any issues. But now 2 weeks later, he's become a biter! He even drew blood today!
He is my fourth baby,I have never ever been bit purposely like this by any of my other babies.maybe an accidental bite here or there, but never anything like this!
I have yelled out in pain a few times,I always remove him from the breast and end the feeding, earlier today I couldn't get him to unlatch so I looked on Kelly mom, so now I've been kinda holding his nose when he bites so he pops right off, and tell him "biting hurts mama, no biting" then praising him when he nurses correctly. But he's done it almost every nursing session the past 2 days, and I feel like I can't trust him, I'm like actually really on edge whenever he's on my breast now. I don't want to feel like this, almost scared to nurse my own son! I don't know what to do! Will he ever stop? How long will this phase last? Help!

I think he's got the point. He's been good now for almost 24 hours

Sorry you are having problems with biting. He has teeth already? Ouch! My 14mo likes to bite, but mostly my fingers and not while nursing, though as the others all did, she does find it quite funny when I tell her it hurts when she pulls away, not latching correctly. I generally will relatch them correctly and tell them gently no, then if it happens again I take them off the breast for a few minutes until they settle down. If it continues I figure they must not be hungry and we end our nursing for a little while and do something else.
