I’m having a bit of a problem nursing my daughter lately. She’s 9 months old and has 2 top teeth and 3 bottom ones. Lately when she’s been nursing, she’s been kind of digging her top teeth into my nipple. She isn’t intentionally biting me, but her teeth are really starting to hurt. I’m getting small cuts on my nipples that she reopens every time she nurses. I’ve tried changing positions, but her teeth seem to hit the same spot whether I’m holding her or lying down with her. The only way they’re in a different spot is if I use a football hold, but she’s nearly 30”, so that’s difficult to do. I don't know what to do to stop her from using her teeth when she's nursing.
Thanks for any suggestions!
