Breastfeeding and biting
When I first thought about breastfeeding one of my concerns was when my son got teeth. What would I do then? I did not want to become a chew toy. Yikes, the thought of him biting me was terrifying and painful. I was worried that I would not be able to continue to breastfeed once those first teeth came in. I knew I wanted to breastfeed as long as I possibly could; just didn’t know how that would be feasible. It really didn’t help that everyone (people who had never even breastfed themselves) would tell me he was going to bite me really hard. They would also tell me how I should start weaning him before he got teeth for that exact reason.
