I am at war!!!!

with my eighteen month ds2. Every night when I am nursing him to sleep, he is trying to get my other nipple. I spend between a half hour and hour, sometimes more defending my nipples from him. He wants to pinch and twist it an I am not ok with that. I have tried redirecting his hand, sticking my finger in my shirt for him to play with, he will not stop! It drives me crazy and I get angry. Any suggestions?

Take him off from the nursing session put him down tell him no firmly or he doesn't get to nurse and walk away for a few mins and come back and ask him he he's going to stop u will continue nursing . That's what I've heard doing . Right now I have trouble nursing my DD bc she likes pinching and scratching my boob while nursing but she's only 11 weeks

There are lots of nursing necklaces sold on etsy. I made my own with some hemp and a donut bead, super easy and it's simple, but my daughter loves pulling it, feeling it, looking at it. If I don't wear it I end up getting beat up by her pinching, hitting, scratching when she nurses.

This. You teach him that it is unacceptable nursing behavior. If he does it, he doesn't get to nurse.

When we nurse, DS (10 months) has a little toy that he likes to play with. If he doesn't have it, all hell breaks loose!

My DS grabs my necklace or holds his stuffed animal.

I have a stuffed animal I use as a nipple guardian. It's from scentsy and is a frog and he plays with it's big beady eyes instead of twiddling with my nipple. They need an alternative to the nIpple, putting them down when they're trying to fall asleep won't help because it's not a conscious behavior.
