My son has had his two bottom teeth for a month now, but just today started biting while nursing (I think the tops are really close so he's wanting to chew more). I've been saying "ouch no biting" every time he does it, unlatching him at the same time... Is there anything else I can do? (The "ouch" is more my reaction cause it really hurts!)

When he bites, take him off and relatch. Third strike, put him down in a safe place for a few mintues. Then try again.

Unlatch and Firmly say No bite. Try your hardest not to smile or laugh when he does.

yeah like the other moms already said just take him off and say no, believe it or not my son only did this to me once and my girls never bit me!

Oh there's no smiling or laughing for sure... He's already broken skin when he chomped my finger.... Not real thrilled about that happening to my nipple! Those teeth are sharp!!!

Should I do the 3 strike if he's nursing after the relatch then bites or if he's biting immediately? (Or both?)

He was great the last month and never bit! I think it's because his top teeth are SO close...

If he bites the third time, I would end the session for about 30 minutes before offering again. Are you treating him for the teething pain?

Teething tabs, have got frozen teething toys also. He's had Tylenol today also... Been running a slight fever (had shots yesterday while is likely the culprit for that)

Any way you want. I would not make it a 30 minute wait; he won't et the association as well.
