What's That Expression?

Don't bite the breast that feeds you. No? That's not right? Well it should be. Because ouch!

Little One now has 2 teeth. They sprouted last week. And they're sharp. She's been very good to me. Until the last few days, that is. Apparently she's exploring the concept of cause and effect. I imagine her thought process goes something like this.

If I pretend I'm hungry, Mommy will feed me. I'll give her a sweet little smile, study her face carefully to see if she's on to my plan, then, without warning, bite down suddenly with my shiny, new teeth. Guess what happens? Mommy squeals and makes some hilarious facial expressions. Then she starts muttering threats of formula and bottles. But I know better. A quick flash of my extra big grin and she goes all mushy on me. That smile coupled with my big brown eyes will get me out of anything. Mommy and Daddy are so easy. And if I wait a good 5 or 6 hours, she's not so jumpy about the whole biting thing and I can sneak in another one. Being 7 months old rocks!

OUCH! Just wait until the TOP 2 come in...Laney's gotten me (not intentionally, I believe) a couple of times with all 4 clamping down on....double OUCH!

Your thought bubble was hilarious. I've definitely threatened to stop BFing all together, but how can I not give in to beautiful brown eyes with long eye lashes?

Makes me glad I bottle fed--OUCH!

My son has 8 teeth, 4 on top and 4 on bottom, and he just started biting me too! I'll pick him up and he just bites my shoulder or my arm. His teeth are like razor-sharp! I'm not breastfeeding though, so that probably hurts 10x more!
