Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

She has several teeth and sometimes bite me when I'm feeding her, what can I do to break her off breastfeeding?

answers (5)

it's way past time to take away the boob. give her a cup. put your foot down. the longer you wait, the harder it will be to break her.
maybe try to do it only at bedtime then only a few nights a weeks till its over. but kudos on u still doing it! i couldnt last more than 3 weeks :( it was so painfull and i wasnt making enough and she always wanted to eat. or maybe pump and put it in the cup sometimes unless its the closeness with u that she wants.
Do you (and does she) want to wean, or would you continue if she weren't biting you? If you both want to continue but the biting behaviors are making it difficult, then just ignore Pink Paisley's stupid advice. If you want to wean her, start with a cup. Have your partner, if possible, put her to bed whenever she would normally expect the breast. She might transition just fine if you offer her a sippy cup instead at night.If you just want to end the biting, try ending the feeding or telling her "no" firmly. Let her latch on again, and if she bites again, break the latch. After awhile she will probably realize that if she bites, she won't get the breast and will stop. 
good advie deranged housewife. I give u praise cause when I son was nine months he started biting me and it hurt I had to stop and didnt want to. U can try a sippy cup and u can also try telling her no. Not to bit you and show her that she wont get what she wants if she does.
