My 15mo is still breastfeeding, mainly evening, morning and overnight. I have nightweaned before. I couldn't tell you how she has ended up back on the boob for hours each night. I suspect she waited till both parents were asleep one night and snuck back in..

Anyway it's all fine EXCEPT she likes here tweaking, twiddling, pinching, scratching, flicking me and it's driving me barmy. I end up clenching and gritting my teeth throughout feeds. We are going overseas to stay with family over Christmas and I don't feel it's the right time to do anything drastic but I am HATING feeding her atm.

I don't mind morning "putting off getting up" feeding or late afternoon "I'll just drink my tea" feeding grin grin but any tips on getting through the rest?

Oh it is annoying! When mine does it I pull her arm away and tell her to leave it alone.
If she carries on I repeat until I get really annoyed an shout out "leave my bloody boob alone!" blush

Bloody annoying child!
I don't have any solution, apart from the continuing to remove hand away.
Just wanted to reassure you you're not alone.

Toddler gymnastics is maddening isn't it? I hate the pinching the most. I bite her nails right down because of it and she hates that so I reckon we're even.
