    Joe and I had a really hard week when he figured out biting, and I got really freaked, like, I'm going to put my NIPPLE in that piranha's mouth?

    But I did the thing where every time, I unlatched him and let him cry for a couple minutes, then tried again. It was HARD. It was not a fun week. Bc a lot of times, he'd just bite me again. (He doesn't take a "hint" easily - still true!)

    But eventually, it worked. It felt a little bit like bootcamp, but it worked. Keep it up. Don't offer an easy substitute like a bottle if you can possibly help it. Be stubborn.


    You can call me JoMo!
