Oh motherhood! I've heard of babies biting their mother's nipples and the day it happened to me I thought I was dying! Bobo was almost rolling on the floor from serious laughter... "these nipples are sensitive my fren why are you laughing"? Even Tito looked up from his position and was laughing. Kini gbogbo katikati ? Wozalldis?! Bobo's mum told me that her son, my husband, was just the same! Biting you while staring deep into your eyes to see your reaction. Like father, like son!
Another time Tito bit me my dad was there, I screamed so loud that Tito started crying from the shock of it. Popsy was not happy I screamed, but I never esperrrrred it...if na you nko? I would like to keep breastfeeding till after his first birthday so if I don't stop the bitting now, then we cannot be breast friends.
- A quick tap on that pampered butt, just to say "Hey mister, watch what you are doing". A light tap will stop your baby in action and hopefully they free the nipple.
- Be attentive to your baby. I noticed that he would bite when he was either full, falling asleep or just playing with the nipple, or when he is distracted. When I see he's beginning to hum while nursing, I free the nipple.
- Another option I've tried is immediately sticking my finger in his mouth. He would immediately let go and free the nipple.
