My DS (14 months old) has this thing lately... when he unlatches, he grabs my nipples with his teeth and yanks on it! I think it's due to teething issues but it's really started to hurt badly.
Sometimes he does it, and then wants to nurse again. And then sometimes he'll just do it when he's done nursing.
Any advice for me? I tried the tactic of "No nursies for little boys who bite!" tactic and wouldn't let him latch on again after he bit me, but he got pretty mad and sad and I have to admit I gave in.
I can't tell when he really wants to nurse, and when he is just going to nurse for a second and then bite me!!
Oh, I should mention that I have a really, really low supply - just a few ounces a day - due to breast reduction surgery, so he's primarily bottlefed, and nurses mainly for comfort (or whenever I can get him to, LOL). Nursing him or bottlefeeding him is the only way to get him to take a nap usually (and for obvious reasons I prefer to nurse him to sleep).
Thanks in advance for any advice. He only has 4 teeth left to come in, so hopefully it won't last long.
