I don't think that was the correct reaction.  She's not going to understand, at all, why you hit her.

 And may quite possibly go on a nursing strike now because of it. 

OP, it's best to control your anger when she does that and just discontinue that nursing session. Everytime she does it, stop nursing her so she realizes that's the consequence. Hitting her is going to create negative feelings associated with nursing.

We have an article in our stickies "When babies attack" that addresses correction for biting while nursing, pretty much as described above. And i agree that hitting the baby isn't going to produce the results you're looking for.

If you "popped" your 7th month old...you need to find somebody to help you with parenting.

Yikes, I agree with the others! Look up nursing manners and biting in the stickies.

I agree with everyone else. Its not ok to hit or "pop" your kid, especially not a 7 month old no matter what they do.She doesnt understand. I know that instant reaction but try putting her down away from you and saying "no bite" and give yourself a moment to compose yourself and then try again. She doesnt know that what she did hurt you and you just hit a baby because of it. Look at the nursing manners everyone described. It worked for me and lots of people.

You didn't ask for help, you made a statement about popping her.

You have also been given advice.  That still doesn't make it okay to hit your child.  That's not me bashing you, that's making a true statement.  I'm sorry if you're not okay with that.
