    Default So cute, does it have a meaning?

    When my LO is feeding off of my left breast he tends to rub it, pinch or sometimes grab/pull it down all while suckeling away. I think it's so cute, but does it have a meaning?

    My LO does the same - feels like she's snuggling - I think it has to do with skin-to-skin contact - the babies LOVE it. Also, it might help the milk come out faster? My LO has cold hands all the time, and she actually sticks her hand underneath my breast for what seems like warmth - so funny

    If he seems to be very aggressive while doing it, he may be frustrated about something, but if not, he's probably just discovering your boobs Mine does the pinching, squishing...I think it's pretty cute too

    I agree it probably has a function with getting the milk out, but above all it makes you feel good and love them more!

    I think your lo is also at the age where he is becoming suddenly very aware of his surroundings, the world, and his effect on it. I think he's just discovering. Maybe it does help with letting more milk down. Both of these are natural, biological normalities.

    OH yeah he's gental when doing all of these : ) I'm sure you are all right with the getting more milk to flow (Which I've also thought of) and or exploring.

    I just think it's so damn cute!
