My 11 month old DD has started to bite me whenever I nurse her. It is especially bad at night when I am trying to put her to bed. We cosleep and I usually nurse her to sleep, however in the past week she has started biting and/or hitting and scratching at my face. When she won't nurse to sleep I've been lying beside her pretending to sleep and then she typically flops around (she's pretty mobile) and then eventually lies down beside me (or on top of me!). A couple of times she has also tried to bite me on my face and my back.
I don't know what to do! My DS never did this and I was able to breast feed him until he was 2. I want to continue to cosleep and breast feed but both activities have just not been very enjoyable lately! Which is sad for me as I love to do both
I know I shouldn't expect my DD to be like my DS with her eating and sleeping habits, but she can't be ready to wean yet right? She's not even a year old! I am nervous about my milk supply if she is not nursing at night. I've had a very difficult time pumping and have not been able to pump much at all. Will not nursing at night affect my supply that much?
