Re: Attack of the arm!

Give him something to play with. My DD starting doing this, and we give her a cloth or stuffed animal to flail around with and she's fine.

I would not suggest not biting. Biting encourages biting, and it won't be long until he's biting back.

I'm actively trying to introduce a lovey to help with DS(4.5 months) transition to daycare in a couple months. That seems to keep his hands occupied.

I just give DS my breast pad to hold and he loves it since he can hold and wave it around he used to like the nursing necklace i had but he likes the pad much better! Sometimes he drops it, i just keep putting it back. If i can't reach it i just hold his hand

Ducky was like that until he discovered the clasp at the front of the nursing bras. Then as soon as he'd start nursing he'd reach over and grab the little clasp. It calmed him down. Although I would never even consider biting my child to get him to stop putting his hand on my mouthy though

Re: Attack of the arm!

I'd use your free arm to put his down. You're lucky he didn't do the same in return to what was in his mouth. Even toothless that can hurt.

Re: Attack of the arm!

Just a thought: argument against capital punishment for crimes(or spanking for discipline) goes as such: why do we kill to show that killing is wrong? Biting your infant to show that smacking you in the face is wrong seems unwise. It won't be very long until he starts biting out of anger or frustration and you are his likely target.

That's what I though, ouch if he bit you back.
Can't you just hold his hand, massage his fingers or something. What about a blanket or swaddle wrap while you nurse?

Re: Attack of the arm!

I'll trade you! Mine crawls can't stay on one breast! She has to go back and forth, back and forth and she's not on one side for very long, less than a minute. And she either has to climb over my belly or over my chest. Chest is not too bad but my belly is kind of sensitive still from having gallbladder surgery 10 days ago (thank goodness it wasn't open surgery, cause that would hurt SO much worse!) and she still insists on climbing on me. Not to mention, when I first got home, she kept trying to pull off my bandages.

She pinches me too and has left bruises. I bought two nursing necklaces from this place I found online called Mommy Necklaces: http://www.mommynecklaces.com/ but so far she hasn't really taken the hint. Fortunately, they can be used as regular necklaces too for going out.
