My daughter is 8 months old and I've recently started her on solids (once daily with spacing new introductions by at least 3 days). Lately she's been nursing with traction- she will stretch the nipple and lock her straight arms against me to pull on the nipples while she nurses. It's resulting in sore nipples for me. I try to readjust her so that she's farther back on the areola or try to take her arms down from pushing against me and she persists on nursing this way. She nurses vigorously for maybe 5 minutes on each side and then she's done. It's no longer pleasant nursing her because it's painful when she does. I plan on starting to increase her solid food intake to twice daily starting today, thinking maybe she's hungry and needing more solids. Sometimes she will kick and cry after nursing too. I don't know if she's teething or hungry. Anyone have ideas or have experienced something similar? Thanks!
