    Default Cheerios!

    Does anyone else's LOs try to pick-up your nipples and put them in their mouths? My LO will sit on my lap and try to yank my nipple off. Its funny but kinda frustrating when I'm trying to get other stuff done. kwim?

    Yep, absolutely - my DD does it, particularly when we're sitting on the bed together and it's the weirdest thing...

    I know eh? I don't know how to feel about it. On one hand its funny that she thinks she can pick them up and on the other hand its annoying because it hurts.

    No, but my DD will scratch and pinch me when I'm nursing her. Not sure how to get her to stop.

    Try holding her hand - or giving her your hand to play with. Sometimes I hook a soft toy under the strap of my nursing tank/bra for her to mess with

    Mine totally does the trying to grab the nipple thing...too cute, but also sort of painful!

    My son grabs my husbands nipples anytime he sees them. It makes me laugh every time. He doesn't try to nurse, he just pinches and pulls. Makes the husband yelp.
