    Default Is he playing comfort suclkling

    My baby plays with my nipple with his tounge he kind of flicks it really quickly its very cute and ticklish but is it because I am letting him stay on to long or just a normal part of bf? He doesn't do it all the time just sometimes!???

    My 6 week old occasionally does similar things. He will not latch, but will want the nipple in his mouth. He'll also shake his head back and forth with his mouth open as I try to help him latch. I've come to the conclusion that he's just comfort sucking. All I do is try and guide his head to my nipple and give him a chance to settle in, just to make sure he's not still hungry. If he continues "playing" I'll usually burp him and offer him a pacifier or my pinky to suck on until he's satisfied!

    Licking is just another way to explore your world. They are starting to gain knowledge, totally normal! Smart baby!
