Biting!! I need help....or to vent.....or both.
My daughter turned a year old on the 19th. She has always been a great nurser. I've often joked that she would nurse until she was a teen if I let her. She does eat solids but has always preferred breast milk. She was sick about a week ago (Nursed constantly) got better for a day and then got sick again. Today she was finally better but has been biting all day. A LOT!! I am engorged and so sore because she hasn't really nursed. Honestly I am so stressed with everything and this isn't helping. I am feeling so angry with her and as dumb as it is my feelings are getting hurt. I know that's not logical but feelings aren't always logical.
So what do I do? Just so you have an idea she looks up at me and bites. It's like she thinks it's funny and I'm sure she does but saying "NO" either makes her laugh or she cries but then bites again anyway. I even (Not proud AT ALL) flicked her cheek today (Not enough to hurt but it scared her).
Help me!!! I am so frustrated and losing my cool.
