    Default Biting

    My 9 month old thinks it's so funny to bite with her newly erupted teeth. She is definitely pushing limits to see what response she gets.
    Any ideas on how I can I put an end to this behaviour as it really hurts?

    DS2 is a bit of a biter. He gets a firm 'no, ouch!' and boobs go away. I find he tends to bite at the end of a feed when he's had enough and just stuffing around, so I also try to take him off as soon as he's done.

    DD used to give me a nip if her head was starting to slip off. I firm No! and boobs away for a while did the trick. I also tried to make sure her head was supported so if she did start to doze it wouldn't start to fall back.

    Dd tried this a few times. A loudish - NO, don't bite mummy! Followed by taking her off and turning her away from me for a sort of 'time out'. Seemed to work, she only did it a handful of times as her teeth were coming through.
