My DD loves to pull my hair while nursing so I've taken to holding her hand so she won't start yanking out tons of hair but she cries when I do it. (I'm not not squeezing her hand or anything, just holding on to it gently so she won't grab my hair) Aside from shaving my head, is there anything I can do?

You could get a nursing necklace or something else for her to play with while she nurses. LOs can be persistent about needing to do something with their hands while nursing.

My 14-month-old loves to pull hair too. Mine is long enough that I can pull it back when she nurses. I also have a necklace that she likes to play with while nursing and I'll often hand that to her before she even gets started on my hair.
