    Default 13-month-old has started sucking harder

    My 13-month-old for some unknown reason has started sucking SUPER hard when he nurses. My nippes are so sore. I have no idea why he all of a sudden feels the need to suck so hard. Any ideas? Advice? Releif???

    Teething would be my first guess- when a baby changes his latch, that's often the culprit. Those one-year molars coming through yet? You might want to take a peek...

    Oh yes. DEFINITELY got those molars coming in! I never thought teething would make a difference. Any ideas on how to relieve the pain? Lansinoh maybe?

    I always offer my 16 month old other things to suck. By doing this constantly he stopped sucking so hard since he knows booby is for comfort. I used ice and did wonders for me... along with goosebumps
