My DD turned 4 months old yesterday and today I noticed she has two teeth already! I am terrified of being bitten and since she is so young I don't think she will even understand if I try to tell her no. Let's hope she is just not a biter and I am lucky!

You already are lucky ... she had her teeth come in without the misery from the sound of it. My DD is 6 months old and we haven't had a good night's rest in a month (and I consider 4 night wakings a good night's rest) and it's because of the teething.

I wouldn't worry about it until it happens.

My DD is 3 months and yanks on the boob sometimes like she's stretching. Like she pulls her head back like she's stretching. So what's going to happen when this behavior is combined with little mouth razors? Agghh!! I'm so scared!!
Thank you GraysMama for my amazing siggy!

I never got bitten but I got accidentally nipped few times. Your LO has to break the latch before she can bite you.

Try not to worry too much about being bitten It really isn't all that bad! I went through it with both my boys and it didn't last long--when it would happen, I'd stick my finger in to break their latch, remove them while saying "no, that hurts mommy" and then not let them back on for a few moments. Both of them began associating biting with no nursing pretty quick and stopped I know I dreaded it happening, too, but I think my mind made it out to be much worse than it ever was

Don't worry about it. They really can't bite with those bottom teeth while nursing because the tongue is in the way. And you will get pretty good at anticipating when biting is likely to happen (for my DD it was at the end of a feeding and she was bored) and you just unlatch them before they get a chance. Not a big deal.

Caleb didn't get his first two bottom teeth until he was over 8 months old, so he was quite capable of biting me if he wanted to, and he hasn't yet. He's pulled away and let them kind of nip me, but it's never actually hurt. More of like a startled, "Hey!" on my end, which jolts him and makes him let go. I wouldn't let the fear of being bitten discourage you from enjoying nursing for as long as possible. Especially at 4 months old, your DD is only concerned with nursing right now, and not playing like older babies tend to want to do a lot of the time.
