How to teach nursing manners?

The top hand is starting to... fiddle more now, specifically with my other nipple. This makes me uncomfortable! I don't mind (as much) the belly button poking, fat roll pinching, eye & nose (mine) poking but I especially don't like being groped so much!

Anything I can say or do to cut down on it? (At night, I tend to pull the covers up & wrap around my exposed parts, or else I won't be able to sleep while he's nursing.)

Re: How to teach nursing manners?

Can you wear a nursing bra and keep the other side closed?

It is closed & he reaches in from the top!!!!!!! (A skill he will need later, but now - not so much!)

I guess I could do a sport bra but ugh, I want to be comfy!!

No blanket or stuffed animal - never got attached to one.

Thanks for the Kellymom article. That gave a lot of good ideas.
