    Default Tugging and Pulling

    My 8 month old has recently starting tugging and pulling a lot while nursing. Curious if anyone has had experience with this and what do you thing was causing it? Not sure if it's just a phase or there is a reason behind it. It's like he tries to nurse while being as far away as possible. It is starting to cause some soreness, not unbearable but unpleasant nonetheless. Any ideas??

    Oh yeah, that sounds familiar. Lots of potential causes. Sometimes the baby gets distracted, and wants to look elsewhere in the room while still retaining his grip on mom. Sometimes it's teething. Or baby's way of stimulating a faster milk flow, or of stopping a fast milk flow.
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
