Is this a sign that he's angry or frustrated?

Posted by   + Show Post

My son is 3 months old. My son was nice about nursing on my nipples.

But a week ago he started pulling and chewing on my nipples.

really?? wth?? is this his way of showing that he's angry or frustrated?

i will say, "sam, no" in a stern voice. but it doesn't help because he will do it again.

can anyone tell me if this is normal. how do i get him to stop?

No, like they said, it's normal. He started out little, he needed enough calories for a little baby, and your body was producing that. Now he's getting bigger, he needs more calories, so he's telling your body to step it up. His behavior will increase your supply all by itself if you continue to let him nurse on demand.

Wrong. You SHOULD worry about all those clothes that you haven't put on him yet... he's about to inconsiderately outgrow them. But this is NORMAL stuff.

Quoting vinalex0581:


so if this IS the case, his behavior should be telling me that my milk supply is low and i should worry, right?
