If he spins his head round without unlatching again I think my nip might just come off! We're in a quiet calm place with no distractions - what else can I try?

Putting a shawl or something over his head. Clearly don't suffocate him grin. It never worked with mine. He liked to see what was going on.

Is he actually hungry. You could try stopping for a few minutes and then see what happens.

Unfortunately he's just working out that the world is a fascinating place and there's lots to see!

Place marking for better ideas than just being very ready to unlatch. Mine also chews so getting quick with unlatch followed by No! And wait 30s before latching. Not mad on the clamp/head shake move either!

You can get jewellery for breastfeeding - i found this really helpful when my little one was getting distracted. They can fiddle with it while feeding, which I found helped to stop the yanked nipples! There are various places that sell them (can't remember where I got mine), but this one seems to have a good range:

Good luck!

littlebear we call that 'the parrot' - DH can often be heard saying "just put a blanket over the pram so he thinks it's sleepy time"!
Maybe DS wasn't that hungry despite the screeching... now he's all smily and leg kicky and wanting a play!

If DS is genuinely hungry as opposed to just passing the time, I find a lot less chompsing and head-spinning occurs. Obviously I don't starve the child but I don't produce a boob any more often than two-hourly.
