  • What worked with mine was to immediately unlatch them from the breast. They realized biting meant a rude interruption to their meal.

  • End the meal for a couple minutes. It won't take long for baby to understand biting means no boob. You need to watch closely and make sure she isnt done and just getting a little bored. I've noticed that's when my daughter likes to chomp, thank goodness she doesnt have teeth yet lol.

  • Like the other ladies said, stop the feeding for a few minutes. If she bites again, stop for a little longer. If she does it again, end it all together. Your baby will come to learn that biting means no nursing.
