Here we are, on day 9 of what I think is a strike. DS has been teething, and he started biting again. He'll nurse when he's asleep only. If he's awake, he bites. He'll ask to nurse, I'll offer the breast, he'll latch on and suck for a few seconds, and then he bites hard and pulls away and cries. It's heartbreaking to know that he wants to nurse but won't continue once he's bitten me. I've tried telling him "no bite," ending the nursing session and trying again later, acting like nothing is wrong (even though it hurts so badly)--nothing gets him back on the breast without the biting, pulling off, and crying. I'm at my wits end because I don't know what to do. If he wants to wean, it's ok with me as long as he's happy with not nursing. But, he clearly wants to nurse but won't. Trying to nurse when he's awake leaves us both frustrated and upset. And the biting certainly isn't helping either. I find myself not wanting to offer to nurse because I'm afraid of the biting. I'm dismayed with myself for not wanting to offer to nurse and for not knowing how to fix this problem. I don't know, maybe he just wants to torture me by weaning the hard way, with lots of tears and biting. This is so not what I wanted our toddler nursing adventures to be like.
