Re: constant pinching

Pinching is a regular occurance here. I don't get bit, yet... I wear a nursing necklace, or give DS something to play with, usually my finger. I know it's painful! I have bruises everywhere, too. Oh, those sharp nails and tiny strong fingers!

Re: constant pinching

My ds scratches and every so often gives me a good hard punch on the side he's not nursing on. Ouch!

Re: constant pinching

I wouldn't advocate doing this if it *upset* your child, but once when my ds was in a bad pinching phase I slipped his socks off and put them on his hands. He was distracted by the novelty of it and didn't get upset and we nursed without pinching!!

Re: constant pinching

That's so hard. A nursing necklace has helped me. My DS was never interested in the other necklaces I wore until I got the ones with the big chunky beads and a big wooden ring on it that he can fool with. If I don't have the necklace around, I hold his hand and sing to him. HTH

Re: constant pinching

I have a kneader too. She's 18 months and she's been that way since birth. I've never been able to break her of it. Occasionally, I can get her to grasp my fingers instead--and she still kneads those. It's like it's very ingrained.

She likes to take the top layer of skin and roll it between her fingers, but she'll also do some serious deep kneading (like a kitten). When she puts her mind to it, she can drain a breast in 2 minutes flat. I have to keep her nails very short or she scratches me.

Sorry, not much advice, just commiseration from another mommy with bruised and scratched boobies .

Re: constant pinching

yeah my son grabs and squeezes my arm so hard, and he digs his nails do they get so strong. i have screamed a few times when I wasn't paying attention adn he did it.

I just try to do like others said and hold his hand or keep his attention...but dang does it ever hurt!

oh I tried before to just give him a little smack on his hand...not to hurt just thought it would scare him to quit...he laughed HYSTERICALLY at me! So much for that! LOL
