My ds is a sleep sucker. He will nurse all night long if I let him (I've tried before, it went on for 50 minutes before I got tired of it) so usually I'll wait till he's good and asleep and sneak my nipple out of his mouth and slip away. He has 6 teeth now and ever since he cut his teeth I've had a hard time sneaking the nipple out without scraping on his teeth. Are there tricks? How do I get the nipple out without the scraping, it hurts!<br><br>
Thanks!!

What has worked with my two is to slip a finger in beside the nipple before the sneak and slip. That way they can't bite down (or more accurately they bite my finger instead of my nipple).

try slidding your finger in nail side to top teeth. then gently turn finger to open your ds's mouth wider so that you can easily slip your nipple out.<br><br>
that hurts just thinking about that slip bite!
