BFing and teeth

My babe is 14 months and is a slow teether. He has had his two bottom front teeth for about 6 months, but is just now getting his top front teeth. They have broken through the skin completely over the last week or so. They are VERY SHARP and nursing is extremely painful. He's not biting me. When he nurses, as he sucks, the teeth just kind of rub. I don't remember this happening with my other BF babies, but they had teeth much earlier, and I didn't nurse this long.

Please tell me this gets better as the teeth come all the way in!! I do not want to wean him.

This happened to me with my DD. She would leave indentions on my nipple and she wasn't bitting either. The pain went away after a few weeks. I developed a little callus where her teeth rubbed. We went on to nurse until she self weaned at 17 month. Your nursing relationship is far from over!

My ds #2 has been getting teeth really early. He has had the 8 front teeth since he was 6 months old. At 12 months he has 12 teeth. I had the same problem that you have and what I found to be the only way to make it bearable is to point the babys head away from you so that babys teeth are not turning in on you but angled away from you if that makes sense.
