Our five-month-old bites while breastfeeding and it hurts. How can I stop her? Babies do bite the breast that feeds them. As soon as those pearly whites begin to painfully bother her gums (can begin as early as three months), she naturally turns to her favorite pacifier – mom. What’s even more startling is the irritating little nip that comes just as you are feeling the effects of your natural tranquilizing hormones, as if being jarred out of a light sleep. Try these suggestions to lessen biting:
React appropriate to how it feels. “Ouch!” you holler as you pry those little baby jaws apart with your fingers to preserve your precious, tender piece of flesh. Once you’ve rescued your nipple, watch baby’s face. Sensitive babies will cry at mother’s reaction. Calm her and immediately resume nursing. When she bites again, react the same way. Eventually, baby will associate biting with an undesirable reaction and will stop biting.
表達出妳的感受 “好痛！” 妳慘叫一聲並用手指把小怪獸的嘴扳開，搶救妳寶貴的脆弱ne頭。當妳救了ne頭時，看看小怪獸的臉。敏感的寶寶感受到媽媽的反應就哭了。安撫她並趕快再給奶。她又再咬的話，再次同樣的用力表達妳的痛，到最後寶寶會連想到如果咬了會出現她討厭的反應，而停止咬妳。
