There's no reason to be scared. Most babies don't bite. Always treat teething pain before nursing and watch for signs that baby is done nursing, playing, or bored and end the feeding before a bite can happen. If you do get bit, you end the feeding to teach that biting = no nursing.

My oldest each bit me only once, and I think my reaction helped them to not do it again! :). No need to be scared just do what the first poster said.

My lil one did bit and even smiled afterword but he did learn quickly that when he bit I would take him off the breast for a few minutes. It was a little rough few weeks though of sore nipples and ice packs :)

My little guy has 8 teeth and still is EBF!  He's 13 months!  He sometimes will bite when he's near the end of a nursing session but not hurt me.

Idk what I'm doing wrong, but I have teeth marks permanently scared on my areola. He doesn't bite, but the pressure from sucking presses his top teeth in, and after a long session can be uncomfortable bordering painful. Its not bad enough that I'd quit, but I wouldn't say it's painless.

That is most likely from your positioning. Bring him up higher so he's not pulling on the breast.

My 2 year cold cut his fir teeth before he was 4 months and had a mouth full by 8 months and he never bit me. Teeth aren't anything to worry about.
