My son is nine months old and he BITES! He only bites my left side. He bites every feeding on that side. We spend the whole time battling. Before I would yelp in pain and tap his cheek and no response. I was advised to pull him into the breast but that was unsuccessful. Now I just yell in pain and he ends up crying while I am and we hold each other until we are ready to give it another try. I thought it was the position we use so I've changed positions. He just always bites. I don't know what to do.
Plus I just got a new job where I will be working 40 hours a week starting Monday. How can I make the transition for him easier? I am going to get a pump to relieve myself at work. He has had a hard time taking a bottle before.
Any advice for both of my dilemmas?? haha I am stressing!!!
