Poor you, that sounds horrible. I'd want to stop to in your shoes but it would be a shame to end on such a negative. Maybe you could let him feed from the non-bitten side for a few more days or weeks then end more gently?

Honestly he called me over to him, mummy sit down, grabbed my boob and bit it he knew what he was doing and unfortunately I reacted by bouncing around the room howling like an injured dog. He's shouting sorry sorry so he knows grrrrr

Really sad about your poor breast.

I don't think it has to be the end of bf unless you want it to be.

At this age they just don't have any empathy - I guess the response to this should be the same as other tantrums.

It doesn't have to be the end, but if you've had enough I don't see why you should continue.

Could you make the decision to stop over the next few weeks, and do so gently - withdrawing daytime feeds first for example. That way you can both be better prepared emotionally for stopping and this incident won't be your last memory of bf.

My two and a half year old mid tantrum has looked me in the eye and sunk his teeth in to my boob and made me bleed. He's currently screaming his head off in his bedroom I don't want him near me.
That has to be the end of BF doesn't it ?
I'd had enough already and whilst I didn't want to end it like this it's not the first time he's done it either.
I'm so sad about the whole thing.
