  • My baby pinches the breast that she's eating from. If I want her to stop I just grab her hand and hold usually works, sometimes she's too wiggly though and will work to make me let go of her hand and then I just put up with it. Crazy huh?

  • Get a nursing necklace. It gives baby somthing to play with while nursing. You can buy one or make your own.

  • Yeah I had to distract mine with a toy in their hand while nursing...The necklace is a good idea! When DD started with the slapping (like hard it hurt) i would take her off the breast and lay her down for about 5-10 sec and then start over. She eventually stopped.

  • she pinches my boobs. Ive got so many marks on them :( She only does it occasionally now, but if I get so aggrivated (or sore), I put a sock on her pinching hand.

  • Yes and it hurts! I usually give him a pacifier or something else with which to play.

  • I second the nursing necklace idea!! I had one made for each of my kids with their names on it and different colors and themes. They loved them and it made nursing a breeze. Now I have them in my keepsake box as a happy memory.

  • BTW if you do get a necklace made, make sure it is knotted between every single piece.

  • yup, she pinches, scratches, and kicks me. She is now starting to do it to anyone who gets near her. She pinches cheecks, arms, and trys to pull out eyes. I have created a monster. lol.
