My DS is 11 months old. He has starting biting during nursing sessions... sometimes right at the beginning of the session itself. Sometimes after a few minutes.
He is my third child and I have nursed my other two for 18 months each. However, they never bit and I am at a loss on how to deal with this issue. So far, I'm doing two things - waiting till he is hungry to feed (previously I used to just feed him every 2-3 hrs based on my convenience/his need).
So now I am going 4 hours between feedings just to make sure he is hungry and won't bite. This has worked to the extent where he nurses for a few minutes before he bites. At this point, I change sides and then when he bites again (after a few minutes), I stop the session.
I am worried that he is not drinking enough because not only are the sessions shorter now, they are fewer a day too. How is this going to affect my supply and his weight gain?
He seems happy as usual and also takes solid food 3 times a day and drinks water.
Anything else I should be doing to make him stop biting?
