As you know, my little girl is 10-months-old. She is still exclusively breastfeeding. She drinks water or juice from a sippy cup, but refuses breastmilk from a sippy. Sometimes I can get her to drink 2-3 ounces of formula from the sippy cup. She does eat table foods. Now that you know her eating background, let me continue. You probably already know where this is going.
This week while on vacation, my little angel decided that it would be fun to pinch me while she eats. I would smack her hand and tell her NO. She would look at me, smile, and pinch me again. She thought it was a game. Well last night while I am feeding her, she pinched me several times and then she thought it would be fun to bite me. I smacked her cheek this time. She put out her pouty lip and cried hard. Of course, I felt bad then. We took a break from the feeding because every time she started sucking she remembered that I smacked her and started crying (at least that is what I think was going on). About half an hour later, we tried again and she bit me again, hard. OUCH!! Luckily she only has her two bottom teeth. Needless to say, she went to bed last night without a full feeding.
Please someone tell me what to do - even if it is just to give up nursing all together.
