    Default feeding frenzy

    My son loves to eat. really anything.
    He has 1 tooth and loves to gum things.
    The thing is his latch is getting "offbase".He misses but goes in so fast that he doesdnt notice hes not on the actual nipple.Its really painful.
    He eats so much, I dont think hes STARVING or anything. I know theres milk because I see it on his face and hear him drink.

    I would not let him nurse like that, or it will probably just get worse. I'm sure there are other techniques, but all I can think of is just unlatching until he gets on there correctly. It is also possible that you are offering too frequently for him and he's kind of just playing or actually trying to slow down the flow. You might want to wait and make sure he's showing hunger cues to see if he might need fewer sessions (babies get really efficient). HTH!

    So you're saying he kind of chews at the nipple to get the milk to come out faster? Or, maybe it is coming out too fast and he is trying to slow it down?

    When that happens, you just have to take off and start over until he's on right.
