Re: Aren't they supposed to cover their teeth?
I know exactly what you're talking about!!
I posted something similar in the Breastfeeding Beyond One forum. The thread is called Teeth Issues (or soemthing like that). I don't know how to do the handy clicky link thing, but I just posted it last weeks so it should still be on the first page. Anyway, they said it was called scraping and gave me a couple of links to sites that have suggestions for fixing it.
I've found that if I move Nora's head in toward the center of my body it helps. What I mean is if she's on the right boob, I shift her whole body to my left. It makes her head tilt back a little and relieves the pressure of her teeth resting on the top of my nipple.
It doesn't always work, sometimes I have to keep moving her around until I find the right spot, but I can usually find it. Thank goodness, I wouldn't be able to stand it for much longer.
