I'm too scared to try and pry him off in case he munches down more. Like if I pull away he just clamps down, but i want him to learn that he cant bite me! Whats a good way to take them off, or is there even a way? Or what do you guys do when you get bitten? Thanks!
    I just pull ds2 into my breast, sort of smoother him but not really lol he lets go to take a breath and I pull him away then.

    Sorry TKK, we haven't night weaned with either boy, although ds1 generally only wakes once and if df is home (they co-sleep while I co-sleep with ds2) he will settle him with a hug otherwise df will give him too me (we have mattresses on the floor next to each other).

    Hi Y'all, just found this thread

    I have 3 nurslings, my elest is coming up 6 in Feb, my middle boy is 4 in Jan, and my wee one is 1 in Feb

    We are all doing really well, I guess breastfeeding is just so second nature to me now I kind of don't really give it a second thought!

    Lovely to see so many other mums nursing for so long.

    Tyler wanted to add some christmas cheer:

    :tree:

    On the biting I can generally tell when it's coming and get my finger between her teeth and my breast in time. Then I take her off and tell her, very seriously, that it is not okay to hurt me. Other times when it comes out of the blue I have been known to yell in pain "I don't like breastfeeding people who bite me! So if you want to breastfeed you better not do that!"

    DD is so in love with "Boo-Bees!" that she has stolen the rubber and knitted breasts I use as teaching aids and claimed them for herself Yesterday we went to visit her grandparents and she packed a bag for herself consisting of a cabbage patch doll and two rubber breasts, here's a couple of photos:

    Whenever anyone came near her bag she would yell "MINE BOO-BEE!"

    Oh demeter, i need some of those rubber breasts LOL my DD has to has to breastfeed while having her other hand shoved down my shirt, to rest her hand on the boob i am not feeding her from. Drives me crazy, and is probably th only thing i don't like about feeding.

    As for the poor latchment issue thing, my DD also does that and i just take her off and re attach, i haven't noticed if it co incides with my period coming but i do notice if bub is very tired, she seems to get lazy and it hurts.

    Jabber Jaw, I have the same problem.. DS is a fanatical nipple twiddler, I have to hold my hand over my other boob or put a fold of doona over it as protection.

    Isn't it horrible. I even brought Bub a dummy to hold in her hand instead, but it didn't pass her test! SO now its her dolls dummy lol.
    I remember ages ago someone had a thread on nipple twiddeling but i cant find it. Back then my advice was to keep the bra done up on that side....that dont work for me now bub still gets her hands in or has a spak attack trying till i give in.

    I want demeters fake boobies The would work i reckon!

    same. Over half my breasts is areola and very light in colour. I look at "normal" areolas and dream

    As for the tweaking, I used to get really impatient with DD and haaated it! Then I got knitted breasts and could not quit tweaking the nipples while they were in my hand, suddenly I could see it from her perspective LOL.
