Crazy nursing (eating) positions?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Not limited to nursing mamas: what unique poses have your little ones taken while eating? I'm sure this'll get more interesting as our babies get older, but has anyone experienced anything new so far?

 

I'll start! While side-lying - and only on my right side - Olive will go belly-down and kick herself out to a 90 degree angle. I'll pull her back in, thinking that she looks uncomfortable, and she'll just do it again, all while nursing. Cracks me up! It's especially interesting while we're all falling asleep, and she's the middle bar of an "H" between us in bed. Poor DH, vulnerable to her feet...

 

Anyone else?

Bumping for input. Anyone else have a wild and crazy nurser? bfinfant.gif

naomi's favorite is trying to get her toes up my nose and giggles when she puts her foot in my mouth and i make hungry monster noises. love her so much.

The foot has to be in my armpit. Or kicking. The armpit is better, I guess.

DD is pretty straight forward for the actual eating but latching on is definitely her time to shine.


She crinkles her nose up, opens her mouth as wide as it goes and sticks her tongue way out then DIVES for the boob.

I will give you lots of dollars if you can get a picture of that.

I sometimes get HUGE frog kicks while nursing so I have to lean forward and lock the legs down with my free arm. That doesn't take care of the hands though... those are also flailing around grabbing hair, pinching skin, patting my face.

 I figured that was par for the course (grabbing)?  I have been redirecting her to grab my finger or my nursing/teething necklace for... ever, LOL.

Yeah she used to hang onto my shirt but lately she grabs boob skin and squeezes and claws and sometimes pulls it out of her mouth. Ouch! She also kicks like crazy. No crazy positions though.
