Re: Nursing a Biter

i feel your pain!! i have an occassional chomper too--with the exact same 4 razor sharp teeth! pushing the head in never really did much for us either. my la leche league leader suggested that whenever he bites i should take him off and give him something else to chew on, and that has totally worked for us. if he bites me, then i take him off, give him his favorite wooden toy to chew on for 10 min or so, then i put him back on and usually there is no more biting! i think it eases his pain enough that he doesn't feel the need to gnaw on me. that being said, although he doesn't bite as much now, i do sometimes find little teeth marks on my boob just from him nursing. HTH!
