I LOVE breastfeeding my almost 7-month-old baby boy, but every once in a while he'll clamp down on my nipple really hard towards the end of a feeding.
Is there anything we can do at this age to discourage them from doing this? Obviously I wouldn't want to yell at him or do anything that would hurt him. But until they're old enough to understand words like"ouch that hurts, please don't do that!" is there anything we can do to communicate that clamping down really hurts?
