Is it normal?
Any ideas to make her stop?
Grace - wife to Jeff and mama to Nigella (11/08) and Orrin (01/10)- expecting a new addition (05/12)! Life is a whirlwind, but I'm learning to enjoy the ride!
No clue on how to make him stop so I'm interested in hearing any suggestions.

Cautiously expecting #3 in November!
We are a happy family!
My 10-month-old does this too, mostly while nursing. I keep moving his hand away and just recently, he's starting to play with my fingers or give me high fives instead of pinching and pulling at my face/sides, so we're taking a step in the right direction! Sometimes he likes playing with zippers or buttons or strings on my shirt, so if I'm wearing an "interesting" shirt, he'll usually fuss with those instead of my face.
I agree, it's very frustrating, and it makes me angry too. No matter how often I trim his nails, it hurts! And those little hands are STRONG when they pinch! He does it most often when he's nursing and tired.
She's either pinching or kneading my side or breast or she's digging at my face. What works best for us is to hold her hand or to always make sure I have a blanket handy when she's nursing. The blanket goes in her hand and she will usually knead it instead
and cautiously due May 12, 2011!
She also likes to hit / grab people in the face when they're holding her. I know she doesn't know any better & is just trying to play, but I definitely don't want her to keep doing it. Hope she grows out of it soon. Must be that age I guess!
