My 7 mo old has always pushed around on my breast while nursing, but recently has started to pinch and scratch while nursing. Anyone have a suggestion of what to do for him or give him to redirect this behavior. I've tried swaddling him, but that only works if he's really tired.

Maybe a nursing necklace would help? I've seen a lot of do it yourself type tutorials online on how to make your own if you don't want to spend so much money.
My 5mo is starting to do this as well, so I'm looking into getting one myself. For now, I just hold his hand and that seems to be working fine :)
I have to agree with everyone else. I simply hold his hand and this seems to distract him for a bit. When he starts up again, I'll take his hands again
Moving out to the main forum, as this isn't a Breastfeeding Challenges issue. Please see the forum guidelines for more details. Thanks!
