I am not very proud of this, but yesterday I sat down in the glider with my 7 month old and began nursing her like I always do. She has bit me quite a few times since her two bottom teeth have come in and Ive broken the latch and firmly told her NO, all the while holding back the tears from the pain. No matter how much I cut her nails and file them she still pinchs and scratchs the shit out of me while nursing on the side of the boob, it hurts! She is still doing this almost a month later. Well yesterday she got me unexpently and extremely hard, I accidently smack her on the cheek a little bit to hard. It left a red mark for a while. I am scared of doing this again. I have been tossing around the idea of weining for a while now, I need to go back to work also. This accident just tipped the ice burg and I am ready to wein her. She won't take a bottle but is fully sippy cup trained. I just spent an hour pumping and got one ounze.
How do I go about this ladies?? Please help!
