DS bit my nipple and it bled

Please help! My DS is six months old.
Why did my DS bite my nipple? We just started nursing and he bit me and it bled a little.
How do I prevent this from happening again?
How do I treat the bleeding nipple?

Re: DS bit my nipple and it bled

Just put a little breastmilk on it and let it air dry a few times a day.. going bra-less/shirtless helps too. As far as the why there are a few different reasons. He could be board, teething, impatiently waiting for the let down or just experimenting. With my first baby my reaction of being bit was enough for him to not do it again. With my second and third, I just have to watch them. My little guy I am nursing now does this little smirk before he chomps. When he makes that face I unlatch him quickly to avoid being bit.
