I have been having a Breastfeeding issue with John the past week. He's been biting me alot lately. I called the Breastfeeding clinic whom I thought were pro Breastfeeding, they advised me that whenever he bites I should give him a stern "No!" and offer him the breast straight away. I havebeen doing this but it diesnt seem to be working as well as they explained it would. Now when I offer my breast, he looks at me and bursts out crying as though I had already told him "no" and then is so heartsore he refuses to drink. He is not fond of formula and pushes the bottle away till he can't say no anymore, by then he drinks just a little and falls asleep. He is not eating enought solids either. But was not too fond of solids before the breast issue started up either.
I called back today to ask for more help and say that the last help didn'tsort the issue out and I was told that he us trying to wean! I honestly don't think he is, I think he's heartsore that I shout no every time he's feeding- I see he has linked it to the biting but it's not solving the problem, just making it worse! If you have any better advise that has worked for you, please share it with me. I know in my heart he's not trying to wean
