what are some dangers of pulling my nipple out of my babies mouth to hared?

  • I haven't heard of it harming the child, but I imagine it might hurt you.

  • I don't know how it would harm the baby, but it can harm you. Mt middle child bit down once and pulled off at the same time. It scrapped my poor nipple and it was extremely painful for 2 weeks.

    I would not recommend it. If you need to quickly release the suction, place your finger in the corner of the baby's mouth until the suction breaks.

  • Scraped... not scrapped!

  • I don't know about it being harmful but I heard that if you pull it out hard the soft spot on the head would fall and the baby would cry nonstop because of it..Well that's what I heard....

  • I never heard of it harming the child. Might piss them off & I'm pretty sure you'd be pretty sore.

  • it won't hurt the child, but it will probably make you sore or make the baby mad

  • If you pull out too fast, while the baby is still suckling he may swallow large winds

  • I would imagine it would piss the baby off, but I don't think it would damage him. It would definitely hurt YOU though! Wondering why you would do that...
