Hi, My daughter has been biting me during feeding for a few weeks. It is really hurting & starting to frustrate me no end. When she bites down I stop feeding, burp her & put her on the other side. Then i do the same when she bites me on the other side. And of course I tell her no etc..... So by doing this her feeds are getting a bit shorter, so I decided to give her some formula after she has had boob & solids, just to make sure she is getting everything she needs. BUT she refuses to drink formula. Doesn't matter how I give it to her she is not interested. She has no problem drinking water from her sippy cup or bottle, but won't drink formula or juice. I made her cereal up with the left over formula & she wouldn't eat it. (I kinda don't blame her, it smells disgusting).
So any tips on either stopping the biting or getting her to take the formula. She is only 8.5 months, so I'm sure she should still be having milk at the main meal......
