made it 6 months...
Ebf for 6 months... yeah! Someone please tell me the biting is just a phase. I find myself feeling nervous to latch her for fear of those 2 chompers waiting to attack my poor innocent nipples.

You have to let her know that biting isn't acceptable. Just saying "no" and putting her down for a minute works with most babies.

But yes, it's just a phase. And we are there, too. :hugs:

Re: made it 6 months...
That's what I did. I said "no" in a fairly stern voice, set him down somewhere safe or handed him to someone else and then left the room. He stopped after maybe a week or so. It seemed like forever though. lol

Its just a phase :) we're on 26 months now and it did stop finally lol

Pull him towards you so that his nose is squished against your breast and he has to let go to breath. Then wait a few before relatching.

My baby bites when she needs to go potty.

Grats! I just made it to 7 months and I still get nips occasionally! LOL I just say "NO BITEY" and take her off if she does it 2x.
