I am sooo frustrated. DD is 8.5 months and already has a tooth (bottom) and I think a second tooth is on the way. In the last couple days she has been biting and I don't know what else to do to teach her not to bite mami. *OUCH* doesn't even begin to describe how it feels. She gets so startled when I remove her from bb's and tell her "we don't bite mami". She then cries soooo much.....and then refuses to latch again. I don't want to wean her because I love to nurse. But I also want her to learn that it is NOT OK to bite mami. I know it is normal to go through this but it is frustrating and upseting :smileysad:
And what frustrates me the most is that I know she is hungry so I try to nurse, then she bites me so I remove her from the bb's and tell her that we do not bite mami and then she starts crying. So this morning after a few biting episodes, I tried giving her a bottle....well, she wont take a bottle from me and DH was not home to feed her. So here I was, home alone with an upset baby (and an upset and sad mami).
The other thing that upsets me is when DD starts crying because bb's were taken away due to a bite (or bites), that DH comes in room and wants to immediately comfort her and asks DD "is mami being mean to you?".
