What should I do when my breastfeeding baby starts biting?

She won't take any formula, and pumping is difficult for me bc my milk won't let down 4 it most of the time.

  • She must be teething so just use some wet towel and give her gum some massages which makes her feeling better. If she is biting you, you just take you nipple out for a second and let her know she is not allowed to do so. I did that to all of my kids, I was surprised that even though they were 4 m/o, they knew what I meant and they also looked at my face(I had pretending mad face). Hope you understand what I mean and this is just my two cents.

  • My son is 3 mnths and teething he's done that a couple times. I just tell him no and try not scream. He thought that was funny. I now rub his gums with my finger first and it seems to do the trick.
