A bite out of Mommie.

Okay I need some advice. Hunter has these two new teeth. He hadn't tried them out while nursing until last night. Oww! I tried not to react emotionally and I told him no. He would stop, but he would do it again about 5 min later. He is only 5 1/2 months old, so I am not sure what gets through to babies at this age. Any advice I would appreciate it!

Even after the years I remember the sensation well!! When Josiah or Malachi would get so involved with their nursing that they would bite I would just tap them on the cheek to break their focus and tell them lovingly with a bit of firmness, "No, no that hurt's mommy." It generally worked and if you remember they nursed til a LOT of teeth were there, especially Malachi. This is such a special, blessed mommy time. I'm glad you are getting to enjoy it.

You're doing a great job!
