Re: 13 month old suddenly sinking his teeth into my skin - w
When does he do it? At the beginning of the feeding or at the end?
Generally the way to deal with biting is to a) prevent it if possible and b) discourage it. That means you try to figure out when the baby bites- perhaps at the end of the feeding when he's no longer really hungry and is just fooling around?- and take him off the breast before he nips. If he does manage to bite you, you immediately put him down on the floor, say "No biting, hurts mama!" and walk away for a few seconds or a few minutes. You allow him another try if he's hungry, but you repeat the putting him down thing if he bites again. Basically, you're trying to get him to make the following connection: biting = mama puts me down and fun nursing and cuddle time ends = maybe I shouldn't bite her any more. It takes time and persistence to get the baby to make the connection, so give it time.
