Re: Latch-on questions - noises okay?
I have a two year old boy and 6 month old girl who both did the same thing in the evenings. They both stopped the "I wanna nurse constantly" about 4 to 5 months (yes I know that seem forever away, but hang in there) and began noticing how they could interact with the world around them. Now my dd is what I call a "distracto baby", every little noise and flicker of a light and he lets go, looks around, then relatches. I have even fashioned a sort of baby blindfold/ear cover to help keep her from getting distracted (nursing in a quiet dim room is not an option for me). She also make weird noise when she nurses, it starts as nasal piggy noises, grows into slurpy noises then becomes a squeak after she swallows, I talked to a LC who even got to witness this, and she said so long as the latch doesn't hurt me and she is growing it is fine.
Hang in there, the wanting your nipple in mouth always will pass.
