I have tried every single trick out there to get Ariadne to stop biting me while nursing. No. Biting is too light a term. Attempting to slice off my nipple while nursing would be a better way of putting it. And you know what? She thinks it’s HILARIOUS. The biting is funny, the reprimanding though? Apparently me saying “NO” (firmly), poking her in the mouth, flicking her nose, pulling her face to my breast etc. is all just gutt wrenchingly hilarious.
I wish I found it 1% as funny as she did.
Today, I’m lucky I have nipples left. Because once these top two teeth finally pop through, I’m fairly certain I will be nipple-less.
She’s lucky she’s damn cute
Actually. I’m lucky she’s so damn cute. It’s the only reason I can make it through the nipple pain. For real. This is by far the worst physical pain I’ve ever felt. EVER. Yes, worse than child birth. <<< but only because it’s that horrible stinging kind of pain that I find so terrible >>>
Have I scared you off from nursing yet?
I swear – it’s worth it. I’d do it all over again, a million times over. And I’ll keep on doing it. Because nursing this baby are some of my favourite moments of the day (when I’m not getting bit)
