My daughter is 7 months old, and her habits while nursing are driving me nuts. At first she would pinch and scratch the top of my breasts to the point where they bruised, so I took to holding her hand. But now instead of doing that, she pinches the back of my arm with her other hand. And I mean she pinches it quickly, unexpectedly, and HARD to the point where I involuntarily cry out and pull her off. Then she starts to cry and often refuses to latch back on after I try to calm her down.
I was thinking I'd have to try to hold both her arms, but I can't seem to find a position where I can do that. Short of a baby straitjacket, what kind of options do I have? What would you try if you were me?
