Help...my daughter began biting a week ago. She got her first tooth about a month ago. Her upper teeth just came in. She now has 2 uppers and 3 lowers. Sometimes she bites at the end of her feeding and sometimes at the beginning. When she bites at the end of her feeding she bites as she pulls off. This has made nursing a nightmare for me. I am constantly waiting for the bite...it happens at almost every feeding. I've screamed from pain a few times, scared her and she began crying. I've said "no bite...ouch that hurts mommy". I've tried stopping the feeding and doing something else. Nothing seems to work. She actually removed a layer of skin off of one nipple and it hurts constantly...even when not nursing. I am seriously considering weaning my daughter because of this. I really don't want to stop nursing. If you have any advice it would be appreciated.
