Well, we made it to a year! Yay!
But, unfortunately, the biting continues. I am starting to worry that there is some underlying cause that I am just not seeing. I'm going to ask his doctor at his checkup on Friday if maybe it could be caused by a jaw or ear problem. Some people in my LLL group suggested taking him to a chiropractor which...I don't know. Does anyone have experience with that? My other worry is that it is a sign of some sort of developmental issue.
He doesn't seem to be biting on purpose. It can occur at anytime during a feeding and he looks genuinely cobfused when I tell him "no biting".
I don't think its thrush, but its hard to tell. I do have pain in one or both nipples/breasts pretty much all the time, but is it from just the biting or thrush too? I've been taking probiotics regularly and I'm thinking of getting some genetian violet and seeing if it helps. Is there any reason I shouldn't use it if I'm not sure its thrush? I can't find anything that says.
