My 9 month old has seven teeth and I'm nursing him still. Though lately since he went with his dad on Sunday, he's been biting me. It hurts, obviously. I was wondering if there was anything to make the soreness go away because I don't want to stop nursing yet. Thanks.

Ah, maybe that's my problem. He uses teeth in the mid-day but it's worst at night.

When he bites say "no bite" and try to continue nursing, if he bites again say "no bite" and end the nursing session. He will quickly learn that if he wants to nurse he better not bite. Also is he biting throughout the nursing session? My daughter used to bite as she was falling asleep on the breast so I always tried to make sure she was actively nursing and if I found her falling asleep I would try and remove her before she would bite down.
