Seriously! WHY! If ever I'm nursing with the other breast exposed his nipple radar kicks in- he knows it's there and he will find it and hold it (and pinch it, twist it, and pull it)!!

Drives me nuts!

That's funny! My ds does something like that when we're pushing thru the grocery store. When he's tired of riding in the cart, he reaches up and grabs my boobs and tries to pull himself up out of the cart! I don't have much at all up there, but he manages to give 2 good pinches trying to pull up!! OUCH!

YES, YES, YES!!! My ds can't manage to pick up cheerios to feed himself, but he can find my nipple, half asleep, in the complete darkness, every time it's not covered by the sheet, all night long, and twiddle...twiddle...twiddle...

OMG. It's awful. So annoying. I don't hate many things, but I hate that!!

My ds tries to do this with me, but it's mostly dh that he gets.

I've heard that there's a biological motivation for this behaviour; that it helps stimulate a faster letdown when for when the babe switches sides, and that I guess it's just generally more nipple stim for milk production. Boy howdy, is it annoying, though! I have to be really careful to only keep one breast exposed at a time, or those sharp little baby claws strike.
