My 10 1/2 month old dd is going through a really bad biting phase right now. She still bfs a lot for nutrition, but I get bitten to the point of drawing blood at least once every nursing session, sometimes several times. I really really don't want to wean her. I am so committed to nursing her, but I am having a really hard time with this. And pretty much everyone I talk to irl tells me to wean. Even dp who is super pro bf, told me today, that I might have to just accept that I can't keep bfing. At which I broke down in tears. Please tell me that we will get past this. I have tried pretty much everything everyone has ever suggested, short of biting or otherwise hurting her when she bites, which I refuse to do for obvious reasons. I know that she is teething right now, and that is probably something to do with the especially bad biting, but my nipples are swollen and cut and I am so tense every time she nurses, finger poised trying to cut her off before she bites. Please, I need some support.
