Well my daughter has her first tooth in her upper jaw, and everytime i go to breastfeed her, she bites down hard taking my breath away..Should i continue to feed her the way i do, or start her on bottles and formula? Im a singel mother who's 17. Would really like the help for some advice. Thanks :)

Congrats on making it so far! :) did you know there was a breastfeeding group on here? Maybe go check it out :)

Nursing manners: when she bites, gently unlatch her, saying ouch or no biting. After a bit lay her relatch. The BFing group could give you a link to kellymoms blog on nursing manners. I say keep going!

Any time baby bites, she gets a very stern "no biting!!" and removed from the breast for a moment. It she does it again, same thing plus you set her down and walk away for a few minutes.
If she cries, this is one time you let her for the moment. It means she understands your displeasure.
Usually this stops the biting pretty quickly if you are consistent.

Definitely continue to breastfeed, this is very important for her health (and yours)!

:-)

You can just get some help so she won't bite you anymore.

I agree with everyone else. Sternly tell her no, ouch, no biting and un latch her. DS only did it a handful of times before he realized hey, mom says no!

Agree with the other ladies:-) It gets better.

I was a mom the first time at 17. I wasn't able to nurse my first two sons but I've been nursing my third 15.5 months:-)

Yep agree with all ideas so far! They bite to feel better but you take away the boob and they learn very quickly!
