I have been successfully nursing my daughter for 8 1/2 months. She got teeth early- 3 months- but she's all of sudden now starting very painful biting. For a while it seemed she would bite/nip when she was done. Now, she's asking for the breast and after 20-30 seconds, she's chomping down hard. I went back to work full time three months ago, and I'm afraid it might have something to do with her being frustrated that the breast does not offer milk as quickly as the bottle. It's been so bad that I'm super reluctant to nurse and if she bites, I immediately pull her off, pump, and give her a bottle. I know this will only get worse if I don't keep trying, but I can't figure out how to get her to nurse anymore! (She does nurse pretty well before/during naps and overnight -we co-sleep- and only bites when she's awake.)
One more piece of info- she loves to be scared. Yelping, saying "no", pulling her into the breast- all these things make her laugh...
I'd love to avoid exclusively pumping, so any advice would be SO greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
