What happens when your gummy grining infant starts drooling and chewing everything in sight? Means she is getting teeth that's what.
It just gets dangerous for the breast feeding Mummy. She's nibbled me a couple of times, but I am geting nervous about the possiblity that she actually chomps down. Hard.
Any advice would be appreciated to teach Sophie that I am NOT a teething ring. The standard advice is say "No biting" and remove your boob. Well actually I said was "OOOWWWWCCCHH!!! I am not your fucking chew toy. You do that again and I am considering letting you starve", while she smiles at me with her most angelic look. Normally I don't believe in swearing in front of little children, but there are exceptions to that rule, and it is an incredibly sensitive part of my anatomy at stake here, so you can understand I am just a little upset...
Sophie seems to think that it is a funny game, and tends to give a small nip to tell me when she is done and wants to be removed anyway. Positive Reinforcement my ass... I live in fear!!
