DS almost cartwheels while nursing now (mostly at night). He'll spin himself around on my nipple...antsy boy, full of energy. I have to sing to him quietly and rub his back to calm him down.<br><br>
The other cute thing he is doing now is playing with my other nipple while he nurses. This reminds me of a poll a couple months ago about what your child does while nursing.<br><br>
Anyone else experienced an acrobatic nurser?

My son would pull back as far as he could go, stretching my boob out, and pat me while making very loud smacking and yumming noises. He is a weaned 2 year old now and I miss those antics.

Mine grabs big handfuls of my boobs and squeezes. While simultaneously kicking me in the crotch repeatedly.

My DD recently started doing acrobatics while nursing. She looks kinda' like she's trying to wrestle my breast <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> while pulling the nipple as far as it will go! Yikes. Then she will pull off and inspect it. It's amusing when it doesn't hurt.

I wouldn't permit acrobatics or twiddling while nursing. My boob is neither a toy nor is it made from silly putty.<br><br>
Maybe try the backrubs, singing, reading before nursing or even a relaxing bath. They have a harder time sleeping if they are all wound up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Pulling wasn't allowed either, she did try it but whenever she pulled the nursing stopped and she quit doing it.<br><br>
My poor dd <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> My sister is a LLL Leader and she gave me lots of advice when I had dd, she never got away with hardly any nursing antics. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
