Re: please help me with pinching

pinching is so hard. dd's only pinches while she's twiddling....does wearing a long sleeved shirt help any? (not that that's a great summer option)

other ppl have suggested (particularly during the daytime) treating pinching just like you would biting - stopping the nursing session (for like 30 sec or whatever - it doesn't really take very long to get your point across to an infant), putting her down, and letting her know calmly that you don't pinch. then try again.

also giving her something else to hold on to - pref. something tactile like a soft silky blanket/cloth, nursing necklace, etc.

some people have success with holding their child's hand.
