    Question lo sqeezes my breast

    this is an odd question but i was wondering if this happens to anyone else. my lo 7.5 months started sqeezing my breast over adn over agian while nursing. it doesnt hurt. she doesnt sqeeze it hard or nething but i was just wondering if anyone else has a lo who does this.

    you think maybe she found that if she squeezes my breast a lil while nursing that the milk comes out faster?

    My lo does the same thing. A lactation consultant told me that they are basically doing breast compressions this helps to get the milk out. She mentioned that it is an instictive thing that babies often do.

    My LO started to do this about 3.5 or 4 months I think. He strokes it', pinches, rubs, pushes down etc. I think it's so damn cute. Someone on here said he just found them

    the pushing down and squeezing - they LO's might be trying to increase the flow of milk...

    I think when he was about 5 mos old he started. Around 6 mos he started 'playing' with them (pulling at it, scratching, pinching, hitting, poking, screamed at it, blew raspberrys, and today just started to growl at it while eating )

    thats funny my lo has always made wierd groaning noises while nursing when she is really tired.

    she has also started to grab my nipple with her fingers and stretch it out as far as she can pull it

    It's perfectly normal, so darn cute! Wait until they get a little older - they may do more than just squeeze a little.
