No matter what I do for the past week my almost 11 month old won't stop biting when he's done nursing. I watch for ques that he's done, I've said NO and sat him down, I've walked away, when he won't let go I've pressed his face in a bit so he will let go. At this point my right nipple currently has two gashes, I'm afraid to nurse him :(

:( mine never kept it up, but sometimes it takes mom a while to figure out what will make their kids stop. Have you tried yelling "ouch!!"? That helped with one of mine....it startled him.

Also there are two ways i recommend breaking a latch. 1. Bring him in closely and he will be forced to open his mouth. 2. Put your finger between your nipple and his teeth and pull your nipple out.

Thank you. I've tried all those, he has three new teeth coming in right now I just wonder if that's why he's doing it. It's just been the last two days of the clamping down and not letting go.

I'm not sure what else to suggest since you've already tried what I was going to say.
My kids, if they bit, only did it once.

Teething remedies?  Amber, teething tablets, cold washcloth, tylenol... whatever soothes him.

I pinched my sons ear lobe everytime he bit. Seemed to work. If I yelled ouch, he laughed and bit again.

My ds has done this off and on through out. he got teeth at three months. He always took a nibble when he's done do taking it away never worked. I understand your frustration. Mine is 16 months old and started doing it again the last few days. Luckily he bites just hard enough to pinch but he doesn't break skin.

 I gave my DS a Amber necklace and he doesnt seem to have too many nursing problems. His top teeth are coming in now and the most he does is rub his nose. Maybee try to rub his gums with orajel before you rurse, see if that helps...
