DD is an acrobat when it comes to nursing. Or she hits. Or she pinches. She is generally annoying when it comes to trying to nurse her. I work during the day, and so I only nurse her when I get home, put her to bed, and once at night. I try to take the boob away, but she almost doesn't care, it almost validates her that she has my attention then.<br><br>
I must say, she is pretty cute when she blows into my boob and gives me "sow belly" on the boob.<br><br>
But really, I just want her to nurse and not try and stand, not try and walk off, not torture me. Ideas?

I don't have any advise. My babe does all the above. I think it's just a stage, and she's showing how much she enjoys it. I guess I just pick my battles with her and that's not one of them.<br><br>
I wish you luck with it tho, and hope that stage passes quickly for you!

My ds was doing a lot of this. I bought a nursing necklace that was made for him with some of his interests on it. It has dinosaurs, and a cars on it that he plays with while nursing. So instead of standing up, twiddling or trying to put his feet in my mouth.....he walks the dino on me or drives the car across my chest. He is still playing but only with the necklace now and not me. He is also sitting still while nursing again which he has not done in a couple of months.<br><br>
The WAHM that made it for me posted a pic on her blog if you want to see.<br><a href="http://lorisnursingnecklaces.blogspot.com/" target="_blank">http://lorisnursingnecklaces.blogspot.com/</a><br><br>
Lori is great to work with and is great at designing something to keep wiggly nursers busy!<br><br>
Here is some info on nursing manners too.<br><a href="http://www.kellymom.com/bf/older-baby/nursing-manners.html" target="_blank">http://www.kellymom.com/bf/older-bab...g-manners.html</a><br><br>
Good Luck! I hope that you are able to find something to help your dd.

I second the nursing necklace from Lori -- I've got two for ds, and one toddler sized for dd (she was smaller at the time, but it still fits her preschool sized head. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ) They're affordable and she's willing to do any kind of design you like. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

<span style="font-size:medium;"><span><span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';">Do try out a nursing necklace! I like to wear one which is more "grown-up" and can "double" as a non-nursing necklace! I've got several (I do make them...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">) and all my kids like to play with them! Even the 5.5 mo old!</span></span></span>

My 11 month old DS is also very rude during nursing LOL. He inches the crap out of my arms and boob and sides. I love the idea of a nursing necklace!! I will have to get one. He likes to lay with my jewelry but I need something more durable. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

so glad to know others have the same issue! (well, you know what i mean<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"> ) my 10-month little girl has the pincer grip from heck and lately tries to pinch one nipple while eating from the other...she's got quite a heavy hand too...<br><br>
so does this behavior actually GO AWAY at some point? i'm also getting really tired of the head kicks and hair pulling in the early morning...daddy's getting irritated enough to start putting her in the crib!
