Breastfeeding Manners

biting breastfeeding manners

Teething can make a baby's gums swollen and sore and baby may nurse differently or even bite.

A baby cannot bite while he is actively nursing. You can prevent or anticipate biting by doing the following:
1) Giving your complete attention with eye contact, touching and talking.
2) Learn to recognize the end of a nursing since most biting occurs once baby loses interest.
3) Breast compress to encourage flow to prevent an impatient baby from biting

Create a pleasant and comfortable breastfeeding experience for you and baby by teaching good breastfeeding manners!

The baby’s brain is developing most rapidly during the first 2 years. Up to 80% of their cognitive development happens during this crucial period. Breastfeeding provides the optimal composition of nutrients for this development.

*Baby only receives breastmilk without additional food or drink, not even water.

Are You Worrying Unnecessarily?
