I am trying to get my almost 15-month-old to ask for nursies in a better way. We've taught her from early on the sign for nurse or "milk" but she just doesn't do it even though she knows how. She pats (or really hits) my chest, pulls at my shirt or burying her head in my chest when she wants to nurse. I have no intention of denying her nursies when she asks for it this way as I just love that she is still asking for it. However, as she gets older, I want her to just sign milk when she wants it. We nurse on demand day and night.
Also, she's doing this thing where she plays with my other nipple when she's nursing. She pulls and twists at it and when I try to pull my shirt down over the other breast, she gets mad and stops nursing. It doesn't really hurt too much as my nipples are pretty tough, but it is soooo annoying. Any ideas to get her to stop one or both of these things?
