Dd2 is 1 and still breastfeeding. She is a really fidgety feeder, slapping,hooking her legs around my arms, fingers in my mouth. But the worst is the teeny tiny pinching! It's driving me mad! I'm so sick of being physically abused.

The problem is that she still mostly feeds to sleep and trying to restrain her just distracts and annoys her. Any tips?

Nursing beads.


Seriously you know the answer, she pinches, you stop nursing her for a minute with a firm 'no', then you put her back on and repeat ad nauseum. She will wail till she gets the message. smile

No tips, but lots of sympathy - my DD does this too at 16 months and her nails are super sharp

I've got a nursing necklace but hadn't been using it at nice as I thought it would be more distracting. I may have to break it out again. The problem is I tend to just let her do it as I just want her to go to sleep so I can put her down!

I have the same issue, and DD hates having her nails cut so I look like my boobs have done 10 rounds with a cat

She won't keep mittens on or play with a necklace and taking her off just makes bedtime last forever so I am gritting my teeth and growing resentful while daydreaming of a time when my boobs are no longer a pinching post

No help or advice, but much sympathy

Know exactly what you mean. I put up with over an hour of nipple pinching at 2am praying it would help him sleep before I could take it no more! Totally identify with braving the pain so theyll go to sleep and you can put them down. My nipples will never be the same again!
