Try nursing her in a dark room so there are no distractions, and space her feedings out just a bit so she is hungry when you nurse. A nursing necklace was really helpful for Dahlia, it gave her something to focus on. Nurse before offering solids instead of after if you are not already too.

Sorry about the biting, that sucks! I always react very loudly when it happens and put her down to signal the end of nursing. She hasn't bitten me in a long long time so I think she got the picture!

Are you ready for her to wean ?

If you are you can just let her lead and you will stop making as much milk. If you aren't then I would be expressing milk to keep up my supply.

Either way as soon as she is done nursing or bites I would take her off. The Nursing necklace sounds like a great idea, Asher often hold a "Blankie".

Sounds like a nursing strike is going on on top of the teething. I think Donna was right on point. When Christian bites its a firm no, and I take him off. Then try again in a few minutes. If hes not actively sucking I take him off. He cant suck and bite at the same time.

Breastfeed her where she's comfortable at. Maybe it would help. God bless!

Thank you for that insight?.... I noticed your not really a member of this board and actually just popped in to comment on this thread and various other threads on the website. We've been breastfeeding for 11 months so it's not a matter of comfort.

As for the other ladies, thanks for your help! I think the spacing of her feedings is helping some! Now if I could just get her to stop night-feeding.

A couple of weeks ago the same thing was happening with us. I actually had sores on my nipples where she was biting! I was so sad and hurt but after a week or so I started to heal and she started to nurse like normal again.
I hope it gets better for you and I wish I had advice! I was in tears everytime we tried. My mom kept yelling at me to just stop but I'm glad I didn't since she is back to nursing again.
