Biting while feeding

How do you navigate when your baby gets teeth and now likes to use your nipple as a teether during feeding? I don’t want to stop breastfeeding but it’s so painful

When they bite, stop the feed and say no. Give then a teether and wait for a bit before feeding again. Try and give teething medication before a feed too.....x

I won’t lie. The first time it happened, I screamed bloody murder because it felt like a needle/puppy teeth/a knife all in one and I think it scared him. When he’s actually eating, he doesn’t bite. I’d maybe take that as he actually isn’t hungry… try again in 5-10 minutes.
