Squirmy Nurser

My son is 4.5 months old. When we nurse, he never stops moving. The only time he's calm is during his mid-night nurse. The rest of the time, his arms and legs are constantly moving. He tries to roll over in my lap and looks around. I've tried rubbing his back to get him to calm down a bit, but he just starts laughing and spitting. I've tried talking quietly and "shhhh"ing him. That doesn't work either.

Any Tips, Mommas?

Just wanted to say...me too! He's 8 months old now and he can't hold still. He claws at his face so I have to give him a blankie or something to hold.

Nope, mama..you are definitely not alone! My 7 1/2 month old is so nosy, especially when we NIP. He has to check everything out around him and can't settle down to nurse. It gets better...if I remember right! : )
