Can you try feeding in a different position where her teeth are less likely to dig in. DS used to do this and I feel your pain. Sometimes of I held him by my side rather than across my body IYKWIM it was better.

Yes, you get into a rut!
I suppose also try going back to basics with your positioning and latch, just to check you haven't got into sloppy positioning habits (I know I did)

May be her lip, has it always been like that?

Starlight, I was just about to post exactly the same problem. On my right side is really painful and those bumps which are supposed to secrete oil or something are enlarged at the base.

I know that my latch has become very sloppy but how do you correct your latch with a wriggly 8 month old. It's very different to positioning a newborn surely?

He only has his 2 bottom teeth so far so I'm really not looking forward to him getting any more.
