Yes, you read that right! Bennett is getting his very first tooth... at 10 months old! Crazy! I was nursing him the other day and he bit me, he doesn't do it often but when he does it's usually not THAT big of a deal because it was all gums. Well this felt different. I was shocked at how it stung.
I knew right away it was a tooth poking through. I checked on it and yes... there was an edge of his front bottom tooth coming in! There's no way I will be able to get a picture of it so you'll have to just image what it would look like.
That hard part about all of this, is that in the last couple of days... he's bitten me several times and it HURTS. Recently, he's pretty much only been nursing at night and in the morning... and I have been okay with that.
I'm not okay with this biting thing. But I'm so torn about completely weaning him completely. Part of me just really wants to be done with breastfeeding all together, but at the same time I'm hanging on to those few moments because as soon as I stop I will feel like he's not my "little baby" anymore. Ya know??
And a question for all you nursing Mama's out there. Since I'm down to only a few feedings a day anyway... can I just stop? Or... how does that work? *sigh*
