My son has his 4 (sharp) front teeth and he no longer 'latches' on... he clamps on! It hurts so bad, my nipples are swollen and sore and I have teeth marks in them after. Another thing, he is very curious and so while he is nursing he will frequently stop and look around, but he doesn't let go or ...uh 'unclamp' his teeth... nooo he has to strip the first couple layers of skin off! I have tried saying 'ouch' really loud and that doesn't work, and then I tried putting him down when he wouldn't stop but the next feeding he just does it again.
I think i am finnished I hate to say it and I am really gonna miss it.
Is anyone else experiencing this? How are you coping?
