Re: bf'ing and biting

I just went through this with my dd and it was terrible! Very painful and even bled several times. The most helpful thing I learned is that if the baby is latched on properly then they can't bite. So if you feel them start to loosen their suck, pay close attention as this is when they can potentially bite. My baby was biting toward the end of the feeding, so now when she stops actively sucking, I take that as a cue she's probably done.
