  • I have the same problem (same age) and she's a biter with 6 teeth. Yep I have tried all the tricks in the book and I still have sore nips. If she does not stop I don't know if I can let her self wean it just hurts to much.

  • I am actually no longer breast feeding she just grinds her teeth while cruising and crawling. OUCH for you, I can not imagine that.

  • My son started that at 6 months and did not quit until he was about 5 or 6 years. He did it all night and sometimes during the day. I know how you feel. His teeth were even flattened a little from it. I have no idea how to make it stop...LOL
