    I got bitten for the first time today.

    Any suggestions on how to keep that from happening?

    Pay attention to baby to watch for signs of being done, avoid loud sounds or things that will over distract him. I personally tap DD's cheek and tell her no, no bite very firmly, and put her down for a few minutes.

    This is all that worked for me. I tried just saying "No" and taking DD off, but she thought it was funny because she got a reaction...then one night she drew blood and I tapped her face to make her unlatch (finger wouldn't work..she didn't want to let go) and got up and left the room..well that made her mad and she didn't bite again

    The first time, I told him no and made him stop for a minute and then relatch. After that, he would get the No and then would sit on the floor for a couple minutes - kinda like a time out. I only got bitten a handful of times so it must have worked.

    Cam has gum "bitten" me a couple times. I unlatch him when he does it, but he's still little enough that he's not meaning to. I hope.

    I just tell Naomi "no biting" and "ow that hurts mommy" we unlatch for a min and try again, if it happens again she gets sat down and we revisit nursing after a little bit. Works well.

    He's SO easily distracted, even in a quiet dark room. I don't know if telling him no will work yet because he's not even 5 months yet but I'll definitely try! Thank you!

    My ds got his first teeth when he turned 3 months old. when I would feel him start to bite, I would gently tap his nose which was enough to break his concentration and he would go back to nursing. It only took a few times and then he stopped completely. When dd started she was much older and I would do the same. If I said "ow" or "no" she took it as a game. If I just broke her concentration she would stop and go back to nursing.

    Perhaps that is all you may need to do.
