Nipple bite occurs usually due to wrong technique of feeding.always sit on comfortable arm chair.put the baby back resting on ur left arm.with head on elbow and buttock on arm.put the whole black portion around nipple in babies mouth.if u will put only nipple baby will not get milk.so it bites more hardly .
