I posted about my nearly 9month old not nursing very much. Well I have new problem now. He is now biting. HARD. He bit when he first got teeth, but I didn't react and just ended the session. The problem soon went away when I was calm and consistent. Now he doesn't want to nurse even after hours of not and he is biting everytime right as he latches on. He did have a drop off in wet diapers, so I pumped and gave him a bottle of breastmilk. He chewed on the nipple, but eventually took it.
He did nurse to sleep tonight, but bit down hard at the end, I couldn't unlatch his jaws and he scraped his teeth while pulling off. It really hurt.
It's all I can do to keep putting my breast back in there. I don't know how much more I can take of this. I don't want to pump and give him bottles but I am unable to keep getting bitten like this. I will go to exclusive pumping if I have to but the breast is far easier!
He does not have a cold and has all 8 teeth in the front. He does poke at where his molars will be with his fingers but that is not new behavior. He is not pulling at his ears and does not seem to be in pain. (But I am!)
