I had been trying to keep this one to myself, but my husband got it out of me yesterday, so I might as well come clean all the way. I have a weird habit of always finishing our pre-bedtime nursing on the left breast, no matter what. I think it's because she was really fussy a few times and after feeding her on that side, she fell peacefully asleep and stayed that way. My husband asked me about it last night and I said, "Well, my left breast has the sedative in it, so <i>of course</i> I always feed her on that side last before she goes to bed!" :LOL<br><br>
What's your weird nursing habit?

When we're out and about, I nurse dd on whatever side is farthest from prying eyes. But for nap and bedtime at home, we always nurse right side first, then left side.<br><br>
For some reason, it's easier for me to lie her down with my left arm under her head. It slides out from under her easier. Don't know why.<br><br>
Lately, all of my nursing thoughts have been about how I would spend my lottery millions. Dd was sick last night, so I had my incredible house in the woods all planned by daybreak.

This is a cute thread! I always try to nurse on my left breast whenever I know I am going to snack while nursing or otherwise need to use my right hand!

2 Late- I also put her on the left if I want to be eating something!<br><br>
If I am nursing her before we are leaving the house I always do the right, I can nurse her on the left side much much easier so I prefer to NIP using the left one!<br><br>
Actually the left gets much more natural action. I pump the right in the morning and nurse on the left and I pump the right before I leave school (teacher) to go pick her up, then nurse the left when I get her, usually followed by the right also after giving it a chance to fill up a little

I watch trashy telly while nursing during the day. We generally try to keep the TV off for the most part and that's my "vice"...my fix of horrid, vile, dysfunctional telly programs.<br><br>
So there. You found me out

I always nurse her on the left side unless it is at night. Its just more comfortable that way.

i am sooooo darn addicted to "magic," the game on my cellphone.<br>
i have always really disliked nursing older babies because of the annoying feelings, like just having my nipple sucked on and the kneading of the boob flesh, and playing the game helps distract me so the kidlets can get their boob time.

I thought of another. I take bizarre pleasure in holding my palm up toward my baby and having her slap my palm (sort of like high five, only repeatedly) while nursing. I just love the feeling of her soft, dewy palm fitting flat against mine and seeing her serious eyes looking at me while she and I share such a silly pasttime. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut">
