    Default Being Bitten - Ouch

    My 7 month old wonderful son, has now gotten 2 teeth, and is continuing to teeth, but now he has started to bite at the end of his feeds, which is terribly painful.

    Have you any suggestions as to how to stop him from biting? Will this pass? As i really wish to feed my son for the first year of his life.

    Thanks

    Usually babies will bite towards the end of a feeding when they are done. Pull baby off sooner. When William bites, I say "NO!" unlatch then leave the room for one or two minutes. They Hate that!

    Mine used to do this. It eventually stopped. We've now progressed to biting at the very first second he latches... so not nice - but very temporary
