My daughter turned one last week and the very next day she was super fussy with teething and began biting me. Every time I offer her my breast, she bites my nipple and pulls off without drinking. I told her no and put my breast away, did this several times, then yelled "Ow" a few times as the day progressed and I became more sore. I've been pumping and supplementing with formula now for 5 days. I still offer her a nurse a few times a day and she consistently leans in and bites.
She bites my arms (and legs). She has bitten my husband a few times but seems to have stopped. My parents were visiting for the last week and cared for her a lot during that time and never were bitten. I mostly say "no biting" calmly and set her down and ignore her for one minute before picking her up again, I gave her a little love bite back yesterday.
She is biting less on my arms, I can see her stop herself at times. I've been trying to anticipate and redivert her attention. I give her things to chew on and praise her when she doesn't bite. Been trying to hold her more than usual. Was planning to wean soon, but I am heartbroken the way it's transpired.
Anyone had a similar experience? Wondering if it's the end or just a strike...
