I'm feeding my third baby who's just turned one. Never really been bitten before till now he is teething lot so is this partly why he keep sinking his razor Sharp teeth into me? I know he finds it funny as he giggles a lot wen doing it but also wen I feed him to sleep he will get to end of feed and then sink them in and drag off which is agony so he sometimes gets telling off. Can't see how I can stop him? Would like to stop feeding but he uses it to go sleep and comfort during the nite. Wwyd? How can I wean him off or should I wait till the hellish teething is ova?

You might find he sleeps better if you avoid feeding to sleep and let him self settle.
I used to put LG on the floor as soon as she did it and tell off and she stopped

Yes I hear u! Self settling may well be the answer will try and do this we just put it on hold due to grumpy teething baby:-(

when my ds1 bit I used to pull him in towards my breast so that his nose was partially obscured. This meant he had to open his mouth! It goes against your instinct to pull them away but I found doing that just caused him to bite down harder in alarm.

With my dd I used to gently pinch her nose and she'd stop. That may not be that helpful tho as I'm suffering the same problem with my teething 9 month old ds and it doesn't work with him as he seems to bite with his mouth open then giggles when I tell him no...
