I had one at about 10 months and it lasted about a 2 days or so...not long, but I was totally villigant about it, offering it all the time, but if he bit I wouldnt have allowed that to continue either.
My breakthrough was a suggestion by my LLL leader to lay in bed with him ALL DAY, and then to take a nice relaxing bath with my ds. We just layed in the warm bath and after awhile he looked up and decided to nurse. He was so relaxed he fell asleep and had to call dh to help us out!!!
I wouldnt personally allow the biting to continue, but continue to offer her the breast as often as possible until this strike is over. Remember it is a strike, not weaning. Most child led weaning doesnt happen before 2 years.
hugs to you and keep us allposted on your progress!!
