I think babies do a bunch of weird stuff like that, depending on habits they picked up in utero. Some try like the dickens to get their thumbs in their mouth, alongside the nipple. My ds was so strong from birth, we also needed octopus arms to get his hands out of the way in the early weeks. He would be mashing my breast all over the place.

Some babies suck on their own tongues in utero, and then find it hard to keep their tongues down and out when they nurse.

Some may refsue one breast, b/c they don't like to lie on that side, b/c of how they were lying in the womb. You can sometimes trick them by nursing in football hold on the refused side.
