My 11 1/2 month old and I are having some issues with nursing. He has 4 teeth on bottom and 4 on top. He never bit me until about a month ago. I reacted by screaming and I think that sent him into a nursing strike for a few days, as he used to nurse about 6-8 X a day and after the biting he would only nurse at nite a couple times while really sleepy. He had recently been nursing a bit better, before naps or sleepily at night. However, he has started to bite again, especially close to the end of a nursing sessions. It's not super hard, but it still freaks me out and it makes it hard for me to nurse him knowing he is going to try and clamp down. I try to put my pinky in there and remove him when he stops actively nursing, but then he just gets mad and screams.
Do you have any suggestions?? He doesn't take a bottle and I would like to be able to nurse him for at least a few more months.
