constant pinching

Well, the constant biting thread got me thinking I should finally post my nursing issue.
(And by the way, Ezzie bites too lol.)
Everyone of my children has done something super annoying while they nurse-for the entire 3-4 years that I nurse them. For instance, Lucia scratch, scratch, scratched me while she nursed...while she feel asleep etc.
Annoying I can handle, but Ezra is killing me with his pinch, pinch, pinching. I have bruises up and down my inner arms. He does little tiny pinches and then pulls. I'm ready to have a break down.
I've tried to reach around and hold his fingers so he can't do it and everything else I can think of but nothings working.
I really can't do this for four years.
Is this normal?
Any ideas on how to kick this to the curb before it's a deep seeded habit?

Re: constant pinching

My DS & DD both do this! (not fun while nursing both at the same time!)

I just talk to them and stuff while nursing & it sometimes helps & sometimes doesnt

Re: constant pinching

Have you tried nursing necklaces to keep them occupied?

Re: constant pinching

Oh, that's what those are for?
Are they actually made so that whatever habit the baby is exibiting, they can be distracted? Does this mean that this is normal nursing behavior-I was wondering if my kids are the only ones who do this? Well mine and Calideedle's lol.
Then again, I have two necklaces on at all times. One is a hanging buddah with the chakra's highlighted in stones and the other is actually Ezzie's teething necklace lol. You'd think that would occupy him. Especially the buddah. It hangs, and he hasn't bothered with it while nursing. When he's not nursing he plays with it. Maybe I should go to Goodwill and get some giant, red, clunky old lady beads.

Re: constant pinching

Omg, my daughter does the same exact thing, only she pinches my boob and arm, and she also pokes me...over and over again. I haven't worn my nursing necklace for awhile, I keep forgetting to put it on. But maybe I'll try it and see if she'll stop...those little fingers are strong!
