You need to let your nursing partner know that you are being hurt. And that that isn't OK.
    I pull DS off, put him on the floor and tell him "NO BITE, It hurts mommy when you bite mommy."

    Oh I have tried "discipline" measures...none have seemed to work so far. I had posted about the biting on here and even tried some of the suggestions I got there...that's what I meant about being patient.

    He bites so hard I certainly couldn't be patient through that!

    I hope it ends soon (the biting, not the nursing)

    I am not actually suggesting Discipline. Not really.. More open communication. You and your baby share a very intimate bond. If it's possible for a child to pick up on stress or tension, it's also possible for them to key in on actual pain being caused by them to their mothers. While they may not understand, most children who's mothers work thru biting with them do get it. Not that it won't happen again with a different set of teeth, but if the reaction is the same, the baby will stop when it starts again later. My son at 2.5 begins to cry when he is put on the floor for biting because he knows better. But he night not if he hadn't been getting the same reaction from me since the was 8months old.
    I too hope you are able to work thru it sooner rather than later.

    Way too lazy for formula

    I had a very persistent biter, and one of the keys for me was to watch him closely for the cues he would give before he bit. He never really cared about being put down, so that didn't work for us. If you are really attentive, you can probably pick up on a pattern, even if it's very subtle (and it was for us.)

    I do have to admit that it is hard for me, when I am trying to have the communication with him that I probably give in too easily. And yes, that is totally my bad.

    My ped. told me that when I put him down it needs to be for at least a minute, and I thought I was doing good at least getting to like 20 seconds!

    We've tried almost everything...now I am just being patient...

    my son is the exact same way!! he has acted like he has been teething since he was 3 months old (even though they didnt come until he was 6 1/2 months) and he just got his top 2 (he is 8 1/2 months now with a total of 4 teeth) and he acted like he was teething ever since his first 2 came in. it never ends! and he bites too... but only after teeth come in. like right now

    what i have found that works great is Camilla teething drops. its homeopathic and it tastes like water and you just squeeze it in their mouth and minutes later i could tell a difference. i ordered it from puritanspride.com i think. you might want to check it out!
