I noticed recently that baby (8 months old) is scratching and pinching me while nursing, but I noticed too late - it started hurting and when I looked at the underside of my breast, I was shocked at the mass of red wounds! I can't even call them scratches,they're so big. They looked almost infected when I noticed them. So I've been trying to hold her hands still, but then she gets uptight and sometimes even has trouble nursing to sleep if I'm holding her hands still and/or away from my breast. I guess I let her get really accustomed to pinching at me because it didn't hurt at first. Oops.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking maybe a nursing necklace, but what about at night? I can't wear a necklace to bed, and it's just as much of a problem at nighttime.
Thanks in advance
