That's it really! He's ebf, 5 and a half months old.

When he is getting drowsy, the bottom teeth start to sink in....

I break the seal or pull him in but it is getting rather tiresome.

Any tips, any ideas when it might stop? COuld it be his top 2 are coming as he is very 'teethingy'.

Btw, he is fed to sleep if not out in the buggy in the day. This one doesn't do slef-settling (yet)

No suggestions, sorry - but DS (10 days) clamps his gums together hard when he pauses mid-feed or is about to come off and I'm looking for tips too...

My ds did this, he would fall asleep and then clamp down, it was pretty sore! Not really a bite but a clamp. I would look for the signs he was falling asleep and then jam in my finger before my nipple got it. But he grew out of it eventually. Sympathies- it's not like biting where you can tell them no!

Yes, that's it, coldcomfort.
