Oh my gosh....within the last 12 hours, my 8 month old son has bitten me 3 times while nursing...he's CLAMPED DOWN.
What can I do to get him to quit. I've heard sometimes when babies aren't particularly hungry or at the end of the feeding they'll start biting down, but all the times he's done this it was his regular feeding time, so he was hungry with an empty belly.
It's extremely painful and I'm about to give up on breastfeeding. Nothing has deterred him so far...first time I yelled out, the other times, unlatched him and said no.

Would you call child services for neglect? Not abuse.
