Markus (7 months) is frustrating me to no end! The past week or so he is into playing with his food (my nipples) and he pinches them. I take him off everytime and tell him "No! Ouch! That hurts mommy!" and he just smiles at me. I dont give him boobies for five min and try again. This happens at every feeding except at night when hes half asleep. Ideas???

 I just hold the hand that is on the loose.  It isn't a permanant fix, but it works for mine. She actually digs in with her fingernails (YES I TRIM THEM) I've had gouges dug into my chest at times. Good luck!

My DD is 13 months and has learned not to bite, but just a couple weeks ago she tried again. She usually does this when she is over-tired and acting a bit slap happy. The last time she did it I stopped nursing her, placed her on the floor in our room (we co-sleep) and left the room. I let her cry for probably less than a minute and came back, and she did not try biting again.

My mom said when i nursed and if i bit her or something she would flick my mouth lol guess i never did it again. Granted that was 26 years ago ....my ds hasnt bit me or anything yet so i cant say anything for mine yet.

Anah does that- she is 16 months. I hold her hand down when she does that and tell her no. I don't mind touching, but the pinch/twist/pull is NOT cool.

Have you tried giving him something to occupy his hands?
I also agree with G about being consistent with putting him down every time he does it.
