I am so frustrated and in such pain, I could handle the biting when she just had lower teeth because I could see it coming and slip out in time, but with her top teeth in now it's just unbearable. If I don't find a solution, the next question is how to transition her to formula or milk. She's never had a bottle and we cosleep and nurse to sleep so her world is going to be very very different.Answer Question

Pumping and bottle feeding sucks (LOL) and doesn't give the child all the benefits of breastfeeding. People that don't breastfeed offer the helpful suggestion of quitting breastfeeding whenever any breastfeeding question comes up. Humans wouldn't have survived if women couldn't figure out how to breastfeed until children were 3 or older and had lots of teeth. Obviously this is solvable. I nursed 3 children way beyond the recommended 2 years.
When your child bites pull them close into the breast so they have to let go. That should be all it takes. http://www.kellymom.com/ is a great web site.

Keep in mind that baby can't bite when actively nursing. Watch for and learn when baby is going to bite and take her off BEFORE she does. The way to talk about the top teeth I wonder if it is really biting with them or if they are resting on and scraping the nipple? "Teeth scraping, uncomfortable latch, or indentations on your nipple tissue from the teeth is not all that uncommon. It seems to be worse for most moms right when the teeth first cut through, and before they have a chance to wear down some and become less sharp. Babies may also change their latch a bit when they get new teeth, as nursing can feel different to them with the new teeth." for tips on dealing with this go to When Baby Bites
