5 Teeths and Biting

Oh no…Our darling daughter has now five teeths (two upper, three bottom) and has started to bite me. She bites me when she is frustrated, when she’s missed me, when she is mad at me, or when she is beyond tired and doesn’t know what to do with herself. It really hurts and I don’t understand why she would do such thing – let alone the fact that she only bites ME. Never does it to her father. I really hope it is just a phase because it really hurts my feelings. I usually say: OUCH (and it is not an act, it really hurts), then tell her that we do not bite. And then put her down or away from me. I feel that this week was the worst week of all but she has been teething pretty hard so this might be the reason why…

She also pinches my nipples (I know, right) and have started around the time we found out I was pregnant. I think she knows what is going on – my chest is much bigger than it used to be and she can probably feel the difference…

Any advice on how to improve a 10 month-old behavior? Redirecting hasn’t done anything for us so far (or it might take time until she picks up the “right behavior”) and I would like her to stop biting me!
