My ds is just over 12 months now and we are down to one feeding at bedtime for the last 3 weeks, now the problem we are having is biting. When he gets tired he bites me. Sometimes it isn't that bad and sometimes it is hard enough to bruise. If I say "No biting" its like it breaks his heart. At nap time he wants to nibble on me until he goes to sleep . Fortunately he has only bit me while nursing twice...he does not like the consequence of me not letting him continue nursing. My mother and grandmother say its just a phase and just be firm about no biting, however my sister-in-law, who has 3 kids, say to bite him back . I just can't do that, but I don't like having little bruises from my shoulders to my elbows!!
Is this a rebellion thing about no longer nursing? We have never battled about it. He just quit nursing during the day and then a few weeks later started biting me.
Any suggestions on getting him to stop biting.
