um... do you mean the 'stuck' business? It happens a bit still. THe other day (yesterday) he flatly refused one side! He said no to any but then i twisted his arm by popping out by boob- but then i offerred the other side and he said 'no, no milk, no otherone'.... so i felt that was pretty clear.

I then drove to work with my bra undone... but that's another issue ::)

Yes, the stuck thing.
Teething is a strong possibility... Just wish they'd cut already!!!! It's very odd having him ask where the milk is, I've always struggled with oversupply :p

It's weird hey!! It could be teeth... could it be that you were anxious or something and didn't get a let down? Perhaps he sucked a bit and didn't get the let down?

Ok ladies, what do you do if the kiddo bites?
My 2 year old has never, ever bitten me before. This morning he did. First once, and I thought it was just an accident, so I just overlooked it (and it probably was an accident). Then once more, and that time I could see in his face that he was testing it out, so I just removed the boob right away and bottoned up my shirt. He was a little upset and said he wanted more, but I said he bit me and couldn't have more right now.
It was hard enough to leave a mark, but obviously not so hard that I couldn't control my reaction.
What do you guys do? Is it ok to tell him he can't have more if he bites? Or will that end the nursing? I don't wanna stop.

I think you have to do what you have been doing- i would DOUBT it would end the nursing relationship- although the biting may be the start of your LO saying they are not as interested... I think the general suggestion is to just stop feeding. I usually say something like 'no- no biting mummy, you are finished'. He went through a period of biting but he's stopped now. You might not ant to say that sort of language- but it works for us. I usually don't shout or use a tone- i may say a stern 'no' but then the 'you are finished' or something is just a matter of fact statement rather than a scold.

F rarely bit, but it was usually when teething. I would give a reminder of "it hurts mama if you use teeth" (and usually my reaction - flinch, saying ouch etc, was enough!) and then if she did it again, would just say something like "you must have had enough now" and stop. More common was that her latch was a little bit funny when teething, so it might feel a bit like a bite but it was just pressure, she didn't mean to be doing it - so then I would get her to stop and try again.

yeah- sometimes even when not teething hamish gets a bit lazy or keen or something and it hurts a bit- you know, it's like he tries to use my boob and his teeth as leverage to get into a comfortable position ::)

I'm leaning towards a bit weird, personally....I think F herself is enough reminder of our breastfeeding time! Interesting idea though :)

Thanks guys, he (thankfully) hasn't bitten me again. Maybe he got the hint.

And well, I know I would be weirded out if my mum showed me a piece of jewlery like that with her BM from when I was little. So eh, no thanks for me. To each their own though.

Yeah, we had that for a while, with F's lovey, Sheepy - he had to "share". Then, as we were weaning, she went through a phase of having to feed Sheepy herself, every night before bed (and she WOULD NOT go to bed without doing it - both sides lol). She seems to have forgotten about that in the past week or so though, probably with the excitement and tiredness of moving.

DD was the same (actually still is). Even though she's stopped nursing, she still likes teddy to have a bit of 'nong nong' from time to time :D

Ah love the sharing

Colby has developed this annoying habit of twisting his little hand round and round my bra strap so it gets all tight and stretched. He actually did it without me realising the other day and then fell asleep. I laid him in the cot and then as I tried to come away I was dragging him up with me by the wrist that was tied up in my bra strap. He woke, cried out "boob" twice and then passed out. ;D
