The baby bites while breastfeeding. What should I do?
As a rule, this behavior of the baby is caused by painful teething. In order to ease the baby's health during the eruption of the first teeth, you need to purchase a special gel, which is applied to the inflamed gums of the child. Also in the drugstore you can take special rubber rings-teethers, with which the baby will massage the gum itself, trying to bite them. Periodically, the baby's mother needs to massage the baby's gums with a finger. In consultation with the child's doctor, you can give it a baby drinking antipyretic drugs.
