In brief: Biting

If your baby bites while nursing, immediately put your finger in his/her mouth and remove him from your breast.
Minimize distractions, try to remain calm, and allow her to start nursing again. If the biting continues, he/she may not be hungry. Try again later. If babies receive a consistent message that biting equals no more nursing, they will stop.

In brief: Talk to MD

If your baby is teething, biting and still breast feeding it may be time to consider a switch to the bottle or solid foods.
