1) pulling her closer to the breast, but this results in her biting even harder as she clamps down and tries to arch away.
2) to a firm NO, or, No biting hurts, don't bite mommy bite this instead. which gives me a smile
3) setting her down, and not looking at her. Which results in her smiling and going crawling away.
However now it seems to be escalating this morning she bit my arm so hard she took a peice of skin out (and that was through a shirt!). I know she was tired and angry, I was in the process of putting her in the wrap (as this is where she sleeps at present). I'm starting to become very frustrated as she is biting everywhere now, not necessarily when she's just tired. i get the impression she finds it fun. I've offered her several types of teething rings but she wants nothing to do with them! How do i deal with this new biting problem (both at the breast and other body parts)? At this age is there a way i can help her deal with her angre in other ways????? i guess i'm just unsure of how to deal with it since she's so young. I didn't expect this problem until she was much older
