so my boobs have become DS's lovey. Actually, my nipples. If I'm holding him, he insists on having his arms down my shirt holding my nipple. Now, if we're at home just cuddling and he's just got his hand there, I don't care. However, out in public...well I'd rather he not have his arm down my shirt. And now he is getting to the point where he insists on tweaking my nipples. He twists and pinches them and it hurts. I continually take his arm out of my shirt and say "that hurts. I don't like it." He just smiles and says "like it?" And then I say "no." So he smiles and reinserts his arm. It's like a broken record. ALL. THE. TIME. A few times in the past couple of days, I have completely lost it and yelled at him. He just giggles and tries to reinsert his arm. It is so frustrating. And it HURTS. Frequently he'll get my nipple between his finger nails and sort of scritch away. I'm on the verge of putting bandages over my nipples to keep him OFF. I don't mind nursing (although we have recently nightweaned, so not at night), but this tweaking business is driving me bonkers. It makes my skin crawl. And I'm quite frankly sick of it.

Do any of you have any tips for how to get DS's arm out of my shirt?

P.S. DS is 22 months old if that makes any different in the type of advice offered

DD1 was exactly like your DS. Hand down the shirt and wanted to hold onto my nipple. It hurt, hurt, hurt and finally i made the rule that if she tweaked, she could not have her hand down my shirt. She tantrumed several times but finally we got to the point that she was happy with her hand/arm in my cleavage and didn't need to touch my actual boobs or nipples. She did this up till about 9 months ago and now she has found a mole on my back that she is quite fond of. She just has to have something to rub...she has a favorite spot on all of us. Me: my "mole-a-back", DH: a mole on the back of his neck, My nanny: her earlobes, My mom: her neck skin, My MIL: her cleavage (gigantic boobs), Her little sister: the crease in her neck....

HAHA.... so long story short, i just forced her to stop and she settled on something else. It was not worth my pain because she would have done it all day long if I had let her.

Blessed with two BEAUTIFUL little girls: Kylie (09/06) and Maggie (4/09) :
