My baby is just now 7 months old. She got her first two teeth when she was 4 months old. It wasn't a problem at first because she honestly didn't know what to do with her teeth. Every once in awhile she would nip, but it was pretty apparent that it was unintentional on her part. Now she bites quite a bit. I tried all the suggestions from Kellymom, etc. about not reacting, pinching her nose for a second so she will let go and so on. That did the trick for a couple of weeks, but now she is back at it. It's hard because my nipples have become sore and even feeding her has become painful. I really don't want to wean her yet, I was planning on feeding her until 12 months like her brother, but I don't see any way around it. Does anyone have any suggestions? And if weaning really is the answer, how do I go about it? Her brother pretty much self weaned, so I'm not sure how to do it myself. Any help would be appreciated!
