Fittobirth Seema can you please help?

Before you start feeding give your baby something cold to chew on, a teething toy, etc.
Encourage your baby after he successfully latches and finishes feeding without biting. Keep your finger near baby's mouth if you feel he will bite gently insert your finger in his mouth and remove the latch. He may get upset. You can gently tell him not to bite while feeding. after a few seconds or minutes offer the breast again. This way he will learn to breast feed without biting.
