    Default Ouch!!! Pinching Problem

    My 10 mo has recently started pinching my breast and it really hurts. She seems to be getting a kick out of my reaction and even laughs at me. Has anyone else had this happen? It is becoming an every feeding thing.

    Yes, my 13 mo started doing it at around 10 months as well and still does it, although less often. He nurses on one side and sticks his hand down my shirt to pinch the other side. I think they do it to see your reaction but also I think it has something to do with the transition from exploring things by mouth to exploring things with their hands. I just try to distract him by holding his hand and covering up so he can't pinch me.

    Yes I remember that. I just wouldn't let my child touch my other breast when he was nursing. It will eventually stop.
