biting issues

Ds bites as he is unlatching. We have had biting probs before and it went away when I started putting him down. But now it's at the end of the feeding session, so he doesnt care.
What do I do?

I would pay attention for when he seems like he's done and unlatch him before.  Also, tell him "ouch" when he does it.

I have tried so see if i can see a difference in his latch, but i cant tell.  there is NO WARNING!!!!  there used to be a warning, but not anymore.    and when i tell him ouch or that hurts or anything he laughs and goes about his day.

You actually WANT to be knocked off the first page of this board... we work back from oldest and first page is a lousy place to be. **grin**

Pre-empt the bite. End the nursing session when he winds down. He cannot bite if you do that.

Tou won't see a change in the latch but a slowing of the jaw movement.

But even when I do that, as he is unlatching he bites down.

Then put him in a safe place where he cannot reach you but can see you. It's the consequence.

But he doesn't care bc he is done with the feeding by then, ya know?

Then the only other thing I can offer is end the feeding early. Tme him. Five minutes, done. Or ten minutes, done. 

Usually you can tell when they're about to stop, but it taks extreme attention.

Also... make sure he gets no solids without having nursed nicely. Not one bite.
