Help me! Nursing with teeth!

I'm not sure if I have a problem on one side or not but it seems like my son is now nursing and I can feel his teeth pressing down. Hes 18m and this just started like yesterday. It hurts much more on one side. How can I get him to move him teeth somewhere else!????!! IT HURTS!!!!!

Re: Help me! Nursing with teeth!

I am sorry mama! My dd has teeth and sometimes right at the beginning it started to hurt on one side, but since it stopped. He isn't biting, but you just kind of feel his teeth right? Maybe try re-latching him on until it feels comfortable... sorry I am no help! lol

I've heard that you can try to hold their noses, so they'll open their mouths to breathe. My DD would clamp down once and I would scream out in pain and it would scare her and then she wouldn't do it again (for that nursing session). Hope you're able to work it out!

I know what you mean...I experience that with my 9 mo sometimes...he has 8teeth! I usually just break the latch, and try latching him again, or even switching sides, just to give one side a break.

Yeah, DS is 18 mos too. I have felt that. I'll just take him off and say "open big!" and open my mouth really wide. He'll usually mimic me and it feels better once he relatches. Way to go on extended nursing, mama!

My son is starting to do this too. If I re latch him it seems to help a little.

Re: Help me! Nursing with teeth!

Thanks for the help and support guys! I am not planning on weaning him but UGH he wants to nurse so often sometimes because hes bored. Guess I have to get off DS ! It was SOOOO bad when I posted this but I think its getting better. Thanks for the tip of telling him to open big, Riverdavidsmama, Ill do that next time.
