Fed up of my 7 month old kicking and clawing...

Me with his little knife nails whilst I am bfing him - ouch! If I try and hold his hand to stop him pinching and scratching my boob he wrestles with me until I free it. Annoying! Just wanted a moan....

Have you tried breastfeeding necklaces? Little hands can then play with beads or other things specially designed for that role!

6mo DS does both these things too. It really makes my blood boil in a way I can't rationalise. The way he scratches and grabs my face when not feeding is no less painful but doesn't make me angry. And the night-time kicking (and pushing himself too high up the bed by digging his feet into me) doesn't hurt at all, but I fly into such a mental rage. No advice but lots of sympathy.

Oddly, when he sleepily tweaks my non-feeding nipple, he's as gentle as can be. In fact he somehow created a big jet of bm from it the other evening with some kind of soft manipulation that felt nothing at all like expression! So weird.

Mine seizes my throat and squeezes my windpipe as hard as he can. If he wasn't 5 months old I'd be sure he's after his inheritance.

Not sure if it's any better than the nose-clutch or the lip-grab, mind hmm

I think we should bulk order some breastfeeding necklaces! At least it's not just mine. X

needadvice yes exactly! He digs his little feet in my stomach and true to push himself up or sometimes just kicks me in the crotch!
