Breastfeeding and Teeth Don't Mix!

the not so innocent tooth
Can you see that tooth? I was so excited when I first noticed it one day when she laughed. It's so tiny and cute. But that little sucker is dangerous! Nia bit me for the first time a week ago. In the past she's clamped down, but gums don't compare to teeth. When it happened I let out an "Ouch!" and she just laughed. Can any breastfeeding moms (or former breastfeeding mothers) give me advice on how to discourage her from using me as a teething ring when she nurses? Or do i just have to grin frown and bear it?

Love this picture. How absolutely beautiful. Now, I know a lot of moms will probably disagree with this advice, but this is what I did.

When both of my girls decided to clamp down on my breasts -- for kicks, I might add -- they thought it was cute ;), I would give them a tiny swat on their little diapered heinies to let them know, "Hey, That HUUURT!" I think the yelp from me is what gave them the clear message: Don't bite mommy!
