So, I know that many mamas have nipple twiddling going on when they nurse their dcs. Does anyone else have a dc that HAS to play w/ their belly button when they nurse or they FLIP OUT!!?? My dd insists on playing w/ her belly button! We have had to get rid of onesies and the ones we have kept I have to un-do when I nurse her. It really isn't that big of a deal to me if she has this habit, but I'm just curious what other bizarre things other's dcs do when they nurse.

:LOL yeah, my dd is into her belly button some days. Honestly I much prefer that than when she wants MY belly button. (or the moles on my neck.... or the mole under my left boob.... or to hit me in the face... sigh)<br><br>

Yep, bellybuttons!<br><br>
I let him play with mine untill he starts really poking/digging (ouch!), then he goes to his.<br>
Onesies are definitely a no no!! :LOL

DD likes picking at my bottom lip. As soon as she starts to nurse her little finger goes straight at my mouth. I usually take her hand and start kissing it so I won't end up with a baby fingernail dug into the inside of my lip! Ow!

J will hum when he nurses. My mom always knows if I am nursing while we are on the phone because he is humming away.

Lately ds has started reaching around behind me and wedging his hand into the waist of my pants if I'm sitting without something to lean back on. It's way less irritating than the nipple twiddling though so I actually don't mind.<br><br>
When he was just over a year, he'd nurse with one foot on my shoulder, lol, the little monkey. Glad he doesn't do that one any more or he'd have his whole leg around my neck!:LOL

My guy yanks on his ear (and if if I forgot to clip his nail - oooh!), pats his head, and unless he's sleepy, rather rudely pushes my free hand off his tummy, and/or kicks it off with his leg. Its like he's saying "I'm eating here, don't bug me!"

dd pulls my hair and punches me in the face. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/crap.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crap"> I hope it is just a stage.

My DS will be 1 in November and he discovered a small mole I have on my cheek that has hairs growing out of it! :LOL: Anyway he will just lay there and feel it, and occasionally try to scrape it off with his finger nails!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">: When I turn my head to look at him, he tries to turn my head back the other way so he can keep playing with my mole. He also likes to do other typical stuff, like put his fingers in my mouth or in my nose, he seems to like to play with my face.

well, mine twiddles of course, I am always fighting him off the other breast, it annoys me to no end. also if I am sitting in a chair he kicks his legs like mad trying to reach whatever he can, like my plate at the dinner table so he can kick it. He used to bug my belly button, but I try to keep it covered up

Thank goodness my son doesn't seem to realize that I have another nipple he could twiddle while nursing! That would drive me batty! He does have a weird thing though, he wants his feet kissed while he nurses. I guess it started when he was really little and his feet were super cute and it has just continued on from there. Now they get stinky, so it isn't as sweet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Well- it's not really a thing thst dd likes to do - but a position she loves to nurse in (that I DON"T like)...<br><br>
Pictures this....<br>
I'm lying flat on my back, dd latches on and then begins to rotate her body so that her butt is directly over my face - she then thinks its funny to BOUNCE on my face! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: Not so bad - unless she is diaperless <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut">

For a while I was having super-sensitivity problems, and I'd have to say "Ok time for the other side" when it got to be too much. Now ds (2.5) says "Please say 'other milk', mommy" when he's ready to switch sides. Another habit is "closing up the milk", if he doesn't get to pull down my shirt or zip it up or whatever, he'll totally freak out.

Dukeswalker, that made me *laugh*!!!!!!<br><br>
My DS, who is about a month and a half shy of 3, has been obsessed with my armpits for about 2 years now! He MUST touch my "pits" when he nurses. He just has to have his hand(s) there. He rubs and rubs and pets. I can't figure out why the pits or what he likes about it. I've asked him, and he's said they're warm and smell good <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> He also likes to jam his foot into the pit he doesn't have his hands in.<br><br>
Occasionally, he will also lick my pits and sniff them. I guess he just loves Mama smell as much as I love his baby smell (but I don't lick him)! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

My DD absolutely refuses to nurse unless I am completely topless. I can't even just pull things up -- she has tried to decapitate me a couple of times in an attempt to move my shirt over my head and out of her way! She wants total access to her teetees (a term I hate, btw ... I have NO idea where she got it from)! Makes nursing in pulic a bit difficult. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wild.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wild"><br><br>
She also nurses with her butt in my face, as the PP described. Actually, she nurses while attempting to stand on her head on my belly, too. She's a contortionist! :LOL<br><br>
She also says "bye bye teetees" and then attempts to cover me up with whatever is handy when she is finished nursing.

DD likes to stick her fingers up my nose. Or play with my hair. But not every time she nurses, fortunately. She's pretty laid back and doesn't really care most of the time.
