My son has started biting when I breastfeed. Be bites down and pulls back fast and fast on my nipple. I take him away immediatly and tell him no, but the next time I nurse him he does it again. He is six month old and teething. I need help before he gets teeth. It hurt so bad earlier that I actually contemplated giving up breastfeeding. I'm feeling pretty desperate right now, so please no bashing.

A 6 mo doesn't understand no and it can scare them. Instead pull the baby towards the breast and the baby will let loose without hurting your nipple like pulling the baby off the nipple can.
http://www.kellymom.com/ is a great breastfeeding website.
