is this normal? my 3 month old is a violent intense bf'er. I should also mention that he is very high needs. When he BF he wont cuddle or cradle with me. He has his head turned to me and his body as far away as he can get. There is nothing sweet about our nursing sessions. He flails his arms & legs out like he is doign jumping jacks and reaches up and smacks my breasts and claws them. I have scratches all over my chest, neck, breast, and face. He punches me with his fist in my already sore breasts and he reecntly started smacking MY FACE. I know he isnt doing this intentionally but it is a horrible scene to watch & I am embarrassed to BF IP anymore. At church the nursery worker asked me if he is always this aggressive & disobediant when he nurses. I told her he was neither bc he is only 3 months old. Is this behavior of his normal? If I try to restrain his arms or wrap him in a blanket he screams and squirms worse. HELP!
