    Today Tobey has been biting me when nursing (he has teeth, this hurts like a bi*ch) I have been pulling him into the breast which works as he has to open his mouth but this afternoon he did it for the millionth time so I just said "Tobey, that's not nice" and he burst into tears and refused to nurse for the rest of the day Even before bed which is his favourite snuggle time, he just cried at me I'm so sad. I'm not ready for him to stop. I'm going to rub some teething gel on him in the morning and keep offering him the boob to see if that helps..

    You gotta nip that nibbling in the butt. IMO, they are old enough to understand they've done something that's not acceptable. If Teagan bites or if she's screwing around and hurts me I pop her off, look her square in the eye and tell her firmly, NO BITING. I try to make an exaggerated sad face rather than an angry face. Then I put her down. If she then starts crying I'll soothe her and offer her the boob again. She usually gets the hint and nurses well after that. Sometimes she'll be in an extra cheeky mood and will laugh in my face then when I put her down she goes on her merry way. I take that as a sign she's not interested in nursing ATM.

    Don't be sad. He'll get back to nursing in no time. Your supply is so well established that a couple rough teething days won't hurt it. I think you're doing it right. Just keep offering but make sure you're doing something to try and get across that biting is bad.

    Simon was doing this alot right before he got sick. Not sure if it was related to the cold, but man it hurts. He tends to laugh if I react in anyway, so I try to just take him off and wait a few minutes. He's not really doing it now though so I'm sure it will pass for you too.
    Hang in there!

    When he is doing something that can hurt himself ill remove him and say hurt baby. When he bites i say hurt mommy and stop nursing. If he is still hungry he'll latch on after a few minutes. Its worked the few times its happened. The first time dh "scolded" him for doing something he wasnt supposed to be he cried and acted hurt with dh for about a day.

    I'm really sad at his reaction. I didn't even yell (I have a short fuse ) I just told him and he cried like I'd just pulled off an arm or something *sigh*.

    DS1 kept shoving his dummy in going "shh Tobey. Stop crying. Have boobie" and was wiping his tears away

    I'm really hoping I haven't put him off

    Awwww. Sounds like from his reaction though that he understood what he was doing was not desirable. I'm sure he'll want the boob again soon.
