Bella has two teeth now and bites and it HURTS! I dont know how to get her to stop. I have been just popping her off and telling her not to bite that it hurts and then putting the boob away but I dont think its doing anything for her.

Sorry, no advice, just sympathy. Ben has four teeth on top and two very sharp little ones on the bottom and when he decides to nip it is so painful! Fortunately he doesn't nip much when nursing anymore; I think it was just an experimenting phase he went through for about a month.

Sometimes he does clamp down just as he is drifting off to sleep, but I doubt he is even aware he is doing it. I just grit my own teeth and try to carefully pry his jaws apart without waking him! If he does stir, I latch him back on to the other side, to give the sore side a bit of relief.
