i am not sure how to stop him from biting, but i think your laughing (i know its difficult not to, cause they are sooo darn cute) may be making him think its ok because he is getting a positive reaction.  my goodness, that face lol, too funny.

I've read that you just need to pull back, say "no biting" and keep doing it until they get it.  If they are really young I reckon it will take a bit for them to make the connection between their behavior and the reason why you are stopping the nursing session (just for a moment to tell them "no biting").  I don't even want to imagine my son doing this to me.  I would probably yell and swear.

I tried the no biting but he laughed i will prob just have to keep at it and keep telling him hopefully he will get it soon!

He probably is teething. My DS has 7 teeth now and the only time he bites me is when he's teething. When he is teething he'll btie while he's nursing and any other chance he gets. I tap him on the mouth and tell him "No biting" in a stern voice and he just laughs at me. I don't know what else to do Lol. Sorry hun! DS has made me cry before because he's bit me so hard. Good luck!
