    Don't sweat the biting. My dd has been having 6 teeth since around 6 1/2 months and I've only been bitten on my nipple twice. Both times it was at the end of a nursing session as to say, "I'm done." But then, your LO may not bite at all.

    I think teeth breaking through is very exciting!

    I agree with PP about not sweating the biting. LO has 8 teeth and the only time I have been bite was when she was sick and at the end of nursing. A firm, No Bite that hurts mommy usually does it. Just make sure it isn't to firm because you don't want her to be scared to nurse. When I did it to little one I removed her from the breast and sat her on the floor (10 months) and she cried, I picked her back up and she latched back on. She has only bite twice other then the cold, which I don't say anything to her about because she is trying to breath not actually bite.
    Congrats on the tooth!

    I remember the first tooth and it was exciting but also a little sad. My baby was growing up and it was the end of those gorgeous gummy grins. I know it's daft but it was one of those end of an era moments.

    His 8 sparkly toothies grin is just as beautiful!

    Now if those flamin' molar would just pop through!

    congrats! My lo had her bottom two teeth come through at the same time last week, so I know how you feel. Thankfully, no biting yet.
