We've been doing rather well with our BF-ing since the last time I posted here. Now, at three months, we've got a new challenge that I could really use some advice on.
Recently, DS has been pinching the tip of my nipple between his lips towards the end of a nursing session. At first, I thought it was just because he was starting to get sleepy and was slipping on his latch. Now he's doing it when he's wide awake. I've been taking him away from the breast each time he does this, which gets me whining cries of protest, as if he's still hungry. So I give him the other breast, as the one he was on is in excruciating pain from the pinching it just received. He nurses a little, and then about ten minutes later, "OUCH!" pinched again!!
I know my breasts are his source of comfort and nourishment, but they're still a part of my body and I'm no masochist.
Any suggestions? I won't let him continue with this, as I know it's going to ruin our nursing relationship, and I'm concerned that it may escalate when he starts to teethe.
