Q.

biting

My daugter is only 4 months and she is biting my nipple already when I breastfeed her. When I say no she gives me the innocent smile as if I am playing with her. Is this the sign of teething or is she just being naugty. How do I stop her, I love breastfeeding. I can see the desire to latch on from her when I get back from work.

She should'nt be hurting you too much as she has'nt got any teeth yet.She is certainly not being naughty.
You cannot really do anything to stop her other than to give up breast-feeding.
