does anybody know if there is a biological reason why babies twiddle the other nipple while nursing the one? my son has been attempting to do it for as long as he's had control of his hands. it must stimulate more milke that way, right?
also, it bugs me, and i generally throw up my hand to "block" the other nipple, giving him my fingers to hold instead of twiddling.
do you think that in other cultures, ones that don't "sexualize" the breasts, the moms allow more twiddling?
do any of you guys allow your nursling to twiddle the other nipple? i do allow my baby to stroke my other breast. that doesn't bother me at all.
do you think the baby would get *a lot* more milk if allowed free range twiddling, to do it as much as he'd like?
