I had originally planned on weaning at 1, but when DS turned 1, I know he loved to nurse too much for me to stop. And I read that WHO recommends nursing until 2. However, DS has been biting chunks out of my nipples. A few days ago, he bit what I thought was a large chunk off my nipple, but the day before yesterday, he bit an even bigger chunk out of my other nipple - I actually bled for 15-20 minutes and then had seepage blood for several hours. I have tried to set him away from me when he bites and praise him when he doesn't, but it hasn't seemed to help. DH and I have discussed the need for the consequence to be more significant, so I now get up and leave the room rather than just setting him down. And I make a huge to do if he doesn't bite me. But he bit me again just now. It is so painful to be bitten, so painful to nurse, and even painful to have anything touching my nipples (like clothing of any kind). I just don't know if I can handle being bitten anymore. I know he loves to nurse, and I love to nurse him, but not lately. Lately I am scared to nurse him and get more and more angry at him the more he bites me. I just don't know what to do. I will continue with the harsher strategy, but if that doesn't work, than I am going to have to wean him. Any more options for getting him to stop biting? If he doesn't, what is the weaning strategy that would work best to eliminate as much pain for all of us as possible?
