Thread: baby teeth + nipples = ouch!

    Default baby teeth + nipples = ouch!

    My girlfirend, bilko, has been breast feeding for 8 months. Our baby now has teeth, and as a result, bilko's nipples are paying the price. Soreness, bleeding, generally unconfortable. Bilko wants to stop nursing due to the pain, but I'd like Bilko to continue. What is the right thing to do?

    Hi Endo!

    Older babies bite for a variety of reasons. These two articles have lots of info that might be helpful to your girlfriend. http://www.llli.org/FAQ/bite.html and http://www.llli.org/NB/NBMarApr99p36.html

    Please have your girlfriend come back and tell us how things are going. There may be something specific that we can help her with.
