I'm so not ready to wean. DS2 teething badly and biting me whilst feeding. Have tried the 'no' firmly and taking him off and facing him away from me, but to no avail.
Really don't want to wean my darling last baby! But feel will have no choice soon due to tension whilst feeding..

Any success stories out there?

My ds - 10 months was doing this and still does sometimes. His teeth rubbed so much it made a cut on the base of my nipple (ouch) - the biting was more of a game - it took a bit of time, but he does not do it v often now - good luck

Thanks janx. No biting today.. Another day further away from weaning!

I would try and stick with it - with the teething it got better as the teeth grew. My ds has always had a poor latch so never opens his mouth wide enough. Hopefully he will get the message that biting mummy is not a good idea
