My 18 month old is resting her teeth on my nipples while nursing. This just started a few weeks ago and it's extremely uncomfortable! I used to love nursing her and now I feel like I have to stop because it's so uncomfortable. I breastfeed 3 times a day and now I am weaning the afternoon session and the evening session next.
I try pulling her off and explaining to her that it hurts and she has to take her teeth off my nipples, but she seems to be ignoring me. I can't imagine that she doesn't understand because she understands everything I say! I end up pulling her off by putting my finger on her teeth (saying "no teeth") about 10 - 20 times per session now. She becomes extremely frustrated and cries but just won't stop with the teeth.
Any suggestions?!?! I would like to continue to breastfeed her until she naturally stops, but I can't deal with the teeth anymore!
Thanks for any help!
