Re: here come the teeth

Hmm just hope she isn't a biter!! With my first son who nursed until he was 2 we never had much of an issue with biting. He did just a few times and never again. I think people think it's more of big deal then it don't let teeth scare you.

Don't be afraid of those bottom teeth - they are under your baby's tongue when nursing. It's when the top ones come in that you really will get nervous. I have never had a bad biter, thankfully. The one thing I would say for now is that your LO may not nurse as well when those bottom ones pop through because they will feel uncomfortable on the underside of her tongue. My 3rd one ditched his paci completely when his teeth came in at 4mos. because it hurt to suck on it, but he still nursed fine.
