    take him off whenever he does it as he will soon learn that if he bite he gets no boob

    If it gets really uncomfortable you could use shields to feed until they heal

    Is there a pattern to when he starts chewing? Is it towards the end of the feed?

    Is there a BF support group on camp?

    Have you tried teething granules before a feed?

    Owen went through this with his teeth (hes got 8!) and it wasnt biting like you say,I think he was easing his gums.It really hurt like it does when you first start breastfeeding.:hugs: I just used to feed in all different positions (lying down helped)so it was never hurting on the same spot,then putting loads of lansinoh on afterwards and it didnt last long.
