my 9 MO son has gotten into a bad biting habit. I can tell he is testing me, because he looks at me, nipple in mouth, and starts to clamp down, and I tell him n o biting, and he clamps down a little harder, and I tell him no, that hurts, and then he chomps. I remove him, and he doesn't seem to care. then when he returns, he does it again. sometimes there is no warning and he just chomps. it hurts like hell.
I'm so ready to quit, because nursing him has become so unpleasant, between the biting, the scratching, and the fact that he doesn't care if he gets removed. of course he gets fussy then, cuz he doesn't get his milk, but he doesn't put two and two together.
