Is there anything I can do about a toddler who bites and twiddles nipples really roughly? My 22 month old bit me so hard yesterday I bled quite a lot and he's been treating it like a game, unfortunately. I've tried showing him that it hurts me and he seems to understand, but then does it again. He also gets very frustrated when I cover my nipple to stop him pinching it.
