Behavior during nursing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Anyone have any idea why babies' hands go ALL OVER while nursing? It almosts drives me mad, if I wouldnt think it were so cute!

You might want to try posting something like this in one of the bf'ing forums.
I have heard of some moms getting nursing necklaces to distract the baby from fiddling, fidgeting, etc. They're basically brightly colored necklaces, often with "picture beads", and strung so that they don't break easily.
I don't have a problem with that yet, but I plan on trying out a nursing necklace when we get to that stage. What irks me now is when ds wiggles his cold feet in under my shirt! (he goes shoeless at night, 'cause he hates having stuff on his feet)

oh yeah! he grabs everything, my nse, lips, hair, clothes, and he kicks and plas. He's just learning, having fun, and following his primate insticts to hold on!

Yep, it's just a normal developmental stage. Baby is learning how to use his hands to explore his world!

I think the worse is when M is nursing in the cradle position and her hand that's underneath (and cold) sneaks around my topless side and reminds me that I should cut her fingernails!! :LOL

She's also really into petting me lately. I have to make sure that the other breast is completely covered or she grabs on to my bra. That skin is so sensitive and ticklish!
