      I had the same problem with my son. Plus he never used a pacifier. So I was binkie and teething toy. I fought it for a while but then just figured he needed his momma. I would always offer him something else to chew on and if it worked then great but he still used me too, eventually he got to the point where he would use what I gave him instead of me. It made weaning much easier.

          My son didn't get teeth until late and I had stopped nursing before that because I just knew he would bite me. lol

              I think I would go crazy if I did it for that long! lol Good for you if you can make it that long! I was going to try and pump for that long but the birth control pills they put me on dried up my supply at around 5 months even though they said it wouldn't. My little guy is 14 months and weighs 30 lbs, he bit me the other day on my shoulder and bruised me bad, I can't imagine what he would do in a way more sensitive area! lol

                  My experience: she bit me, I hated it, and then she stopped for a while, and we were fine. Then she started biting again, and then she stopped again. I think if offering alternatives doesn't work, but you're willing to stick with it, do it. Just be sure to let baby know that it does hurt you (whether they care or not is another topic), and use nipple creams when the bites get bad. A policy of "you bite, no milk," at least for a minute or two may work, but it may not. I don't think I really noticed a difference. I just delatched her when she bit me, and eventually, she stopped biting me. We're still nursing at 18 months. Biting hurts, but I got through it.

                    thank you so much hopefully my little one is as easy. my older kids stopped nursing on their own fairly early due to me drying up and lactose intolerance so i want to nurse her as long as i can
