He keeps pinching me - nothing is working!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Levi is 20months still nurses a lot. He has been driving me nuts though because he nurses on one side and grabs and pinches the other side. Which hurts and is anoying, and while I dont mind nursing in public and do it often, its a little weird to have him groping me at the same time.

Ive tried nursing neaklaces - no interest except when he is done nursing! If I take his hand away and tell him 'that hurts mommy', he stops for 5 seconds and then does it again (and Ive been doing that FOREVER). I've tried putting him down when he pinches - that worked when he was 8months old and started biting, but doesnt make a difference for this.

Any other ideas?????

Clamp your forearm over the other side and don't let him at it!!

I could never tolerate twiddling and that's what I did when my girls tried it. A friend never let her son near the other nipple by similar means but that never stopped him from trying!
