DS massaging boob

Does anyone else's DC do this while they're eating? DS is almost 7 mos & everytime he eats, he'll massage my boob, then gulp gulp gulp, then some more massaging... it's making me wonder if there's a reason? Like he's massaging to get more or something?

Nathan looks like a kitten when he eats - squeeze, push, pull, rub, nudge, you name it! lol

And yes, I think it does help them get more somehow....

Nate's new thing recently is to hold onto the other one while he's eating- silly goober!

LOL My DS is 6 mos and he's been doing this for a few weeks now. He kneads the boob from which he's nursing. I suppose it's just like breast compressions, maybe even encourages the hindmilk more. The funniest is that he now does this to DH's arm when he's holding him, and to my hands, and pretty much anything else when he's relatively still or sleepy. So adorable!

Re: DS massaging boob

Yep! My DS does this too. He's 8 mo and has been doing this for probably 5 months or more. So often we now sing the "pat, pat, pat the boobie" song while he nurses LOL! It's always reminded me of a kitten or puppy kneeding while they nurse.

Of course, now his new thing is that while he's nursing on one side, he's got my other nipple between his thumb and finger rolling it around. Go go pincher grasp I guess!

I bet it's instinctual (sp?) to help milk like kittens do! We ARE animals ya know!

DD LOVES to rub, pump, massage, etc. the boobie.

Is it her pet?

Re: DS massaging boob

yes, my six month old does this too! (at least he did while i was on the minipill with eliminated my over supply issues). it is to push the milk out, for comfort, etc. i remember reading about it in "So That's What They're For!" and i think they mentioned it only becoming a problem if they start pinching or causing pain. my son has pinched a couple of times and YOWZA! can that hurt!

DD started with the gentle massaging and patting, now it is more like a crab is hanging off my boob. It's gotten so bad I have to hold her hands when she nurses now. Maybe I will start putting socks on them.
