DD cut her bottom two teeth a couple of weeks ago and has been feeding fine since. Yesterday she was being silly and distracted and bit me. I yelled out and she laughed. I know that wasn't what I was supposed to do but it was just a reaction. I didn't bleed but under my nipple is scratched and bruised. Last night she would not settle and wanted to be fed constantly. It was awful and really hurt
It was almost like she was tired and didn't want to open her mouth very wide?
The feeds today have been awful. I've been on edge and just now before her nap the pain was unbearable again. I was counting down the seconds.
I feel like I can feel her bottom two teeth scratching me at all times. Its very painful on the bitten side and uncomfortable on the other side.
Can anyone help? Is this just a phase? I don't want to quit breastfeeding. DD is a week away from being 7mo.
My DS is almost 8 months and has 4 teeth. I'm finding with each tooth I have about 48 hours where we have to relearn the latch. This doesn't happen on the same day as the tooth comes through but a few days after. With the first tooth I clearly remember crying thinking i was going to have to stop feeding because i was in so much pain. Then the next day we seamed to have the latch much better and it stopped hurting. In my (very) limited experience it is a a phase
I had to relearn the latch too and it would eventually right itself. DD cut 12 teeth in about 3 months which was hell, but we managed to feed fine with going right back to basics like you would with a newborn.
