4 month old bites

My 4 month old just started biting my nipple while nursing. What should I do?

I said "no" and set DD down, not touching me. She bit a handful of times, and seemed to get the picture after a bit. Good luck mama...biting is no fun!

Re: 4 month old bites

Temporary "suspension" is helpful for older babies, but honestly, I'm not sure a 4 month old would really understand. Does your child have teeth? Are the bites painful for you? If not, I'd personally wait and see if it is outgrown before the teeth come in. Maybe a re-latch would be sufficient, but I'm not so sure you should stop a 4 month old from nursing.

My son started biting when he was teething and when teeth. At 4 months I wouldn't deny nursing. I don't think at 4 months they would understand anyway and they aren't doing it on purpose to hurt you
