    Hello and Welcome!

    How are things going for you today? It does sound like it could be a nursing strike. Some babies do react strongly when mother yelps in pain from a bite, but your reaction is completely understandable. I wouldn't beat yourself up too much over it.

    You might want to take a look at this information on nursing strikes. It has some really useful tips that might help you:http://www.llli.org/NB/NBNovDec92p173.html .

    Hang in there, and let us know how we can support you!
