I am committed to BF my DD until she self-weans. She'll be a year old on the 21st. Anyway, she was sick for the first time recently (over it now, thank God) but it was during this time that she started really biting me, and she's still doing it. I think it might've been in frustration initially, but I don't understand what's causing it now. I don't mean the occasional, getting used to the teeth kind of nick, either. She clenches and pulls my nipple through, at the tip (think of a child pulling taffy through her teeth) by rearing her head back. She's quick, too, I have a hard time intercepting. Ouch! I've started saying 'no' firmly (but not too loudly) and taking her off. I also try to speak sofly when she's doing it right, saying something like 'good girl,' or 'mommy loves you.' When I say no firmly and take her off it upsets her. I don't think she knows the difference and I'm worried that she's going to associate that negative feeling with BF in general. I love her so much, I don't want to scare her. Please share your experiences with me, I appreciate any helpful hints!
