My 16 month old son has 10 teeth now. When they first started coming in I nipped biting quickly. However now (the last two weeks) as he is falling asleep he has been clamping down. Needless to say it's very painful.
I have teeth marks on both sides, but it seems to be one side that is particularly worse. No blood yet, but I keep checking. I dread nursing him now since I know that their first few sucks are going to hurt a lot.
The other night I couldn't get his mouth apart and I started screaming, it hurt so bad.
Since he is not doing it on purpose while he is awake, do you have any suggestions?
