Re: Fiesty little almost one-year-old...
with Phi. I'd treat the pinching/scratching with distraction, removing baby's hands, and gently but firmly saying "No, hurts mama!". If it continues, I'd treat it like biting: the moment it occurs, unlatch the baby, put her down and walk away for a minute or two. Eventually, baby should get the picture that hurting mama = end of the feeding, and she should therefore stop doing it.
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!"
