got teeth?


Written on Wednesday, January 24, 2007 by Jessica

Yes, he has two teeth! Just popped through today. Of course, I defy anyone to get a look at them, let alone take a picture. I haven't even seen the teeth myself, but I can feel them.

    :D Teeth! I can't believe it! This shall make the breast feeding quite interesting....

    I've spent the last two feeding sessions with the apprehensive expectation of being nipped -- pun intended.

    Naturally, it's not going to happen now. He's going to wait until I no longer even think about his teeth while I nurse. Then chomp! I fully intend to yelp and scare the daylights out of him. Then hopefully he'll never do it again.

    Ha ha ha...I was just commenting to ask if you'd been "nipped" yet. :-)

    Little Red Biting Seth

    Jessica: Seth darling, what big teeth you have!?


    As soon as you mentioned teeth and breastfeeding, this passage from little red riding hood came to my mind...Good Luck! and yes, you are right, sooner or later he will bite you when you least expect it, kids are like that...they lull you into a false sense of security ("oh no, he would NEVER do that to me, he loves ME!)then they strike... and get this!, if you scare him when he bites you he is going to hold that against you later on!! (remember those therapy sessions we talked about?). Is this a catch 22?

    Talk to later!

    Ms. Momma, trust me. Everyone will know when I get nipped.

    Zoe, one of these days I'm going to make a Therapy label for my blog and categorize all the posts related to my son's future therapy. :)

    I think he'll wait until he has teeth on top and bottom and then he'll clamp on and not let go. Your screams will scare him into biting harder. :)

    Lisa, thx for the vote of confidence. :)

    Actually, I seriously considered that any yelping on my part might make him bite harder, but I finally decided that it would actually make him cry -- in this case, a good thing b/c it means he'll open his mouth to let out a wail.

    You haven't seen them yet? Perhaps they're not even teeth. Perhaps they're bizarre growths or pure concentrated evil trying to manifest. You may be jumping the gun and have nothing to worry about.

    No, "pure concentrated evil" is what I find in his diaper every day.
