We're still battling biting!!!! She doesn't get it when I take her off and say no. I have had some success anticipating when she going to bite, and we will go a week with no biting, but she always gets me somehow eventually. I do my best not to react because she laughs at that. Any other suggestions? Someone irl suggested a shield, but at 9 months I doubt shed even take to a shield.

Hugs my two year old has bit me once and that was when he got his first tooth Nd was trying it out.

When you take her off do you put her down and walk away? Or just say no and continue to nurse?

I put her down and walk away. She will scream and scream, but do it again as soon as I try to nurse again.

Yes, I do it all, it's reduced the biting, but not stopped it.

Hmmmm. Possibly have a reaction.... say owww! Loudly when it happens. It may scare her into not biting. Kellymom does warn that this may cause a nursing strike though.

When I'm in pain I yell loud, not on purpose it just happens. Scared the crap out of both my boys but not enough to stop them from biting again, I flicked them lightly in the cheek when they did it and said in a low firm voice "No biting". I'm sure someone is probably going to think it's abuse, but it's not. It didn't even leave a red mark and they barely cried, it more surprised them than anything and after the first two times of doing that with my older son he never bit me again, my second son continue for a week and hasn't since then. I tried the whole taking them off the boob, but it just didn't work.

Abigail has a tooth that is right under the surface. She is a gentle murder so I hope we don't have this issue

My second took longer to get that biting = no nursing, but I was consistent and he finally did. (((HUGS))) I hope she gets it soon.
