* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

Dwiddling with nipples

default Dwiddling with nipples

Post by Kasia80 on Sun May 04, 2008 1:17 pm

So Maya has new hobby: she wants to play with other nipple: the one she is not bf.
She pulls and pokes and will not take no for an answer!!!

I gues its because they "new" to her, lol.
Till last few weeks for all the time she knew me I was wearing bra nad a breast pads. Since few weeks back I've stopped (FINALLY) to leak and I've dumped breast pads and sometimes even a bra:welldone:

I have to admit even John and OH are distracted by them- hehe, I get cold and my gigantic, snake like nipples :ashamed!: (well, we do bf for almost 17 months now!) get hard and even John get's tempted with checking them out:rolllaugh:

Any advice how to stop/ discourage her from doing it?

TIA

when aeryn started to do this i always had a toy next to us and transferred her hand to the toy til she got used to the toy! it did work eventually!- try something soft with a nose so she can stil fiddle! if not the others might have a better solution, marianne did this and when i stopped her she started to fiddle with her own when she got tired! was really cute! she did grow out o it though!

E used to do this and it drove me mad especially when I was :preg: .

I never managed to stop her she just grew out of it.

So when S started I was really strict and wouldn't let her nurse if she was twiddling. She soon got fed up of that and it never became an issue with her.

You could try a nursing necklace to give her something to play with!

They often do it to get let down to make the milk flow faster though.

Shannon used to do this and I can't say I liked it. I thought I'd got away with it, with Annabel, but no she now knows there are two!!!!

If he is not dwiddling he is pulling my necklace which is getting quite expensive as he loves the dangly bits and manages to always pull a bit off despite my best efforts and I am going through a lot of necklaces all costume thankfully - I stopped wearing the real stuff very quickly

Jack does this too and he stretches it out so far ......................... it's really quite painful at times especially when he needs his nails cutting.

He does it most at his bedtime feed and I think it's a big comfort thing for him.

Rather annoying for me though lol

Oh DS is a twiddler, kicker and all round squeezer. He's been doing it for AGES now and my nipples had become accoustomed to it. Yo the point where I don't even feel it any more.

When we are in public I just pull my top over his hand so people can't see what he is doing, though I'm sure they can see his hand moving around under my top.

Razz Jaime! Great idea!
I understand what you mean by saying you can't feel it anymore, mine are like this too. Sometimes, tbh, I wonder how its possible I can feel DH during our deed Wink Embarassed
I've found a solution too: Maya is feeding standing Embarassed I let her stand betweem my legs and pull top up, take boobs out and she is feeding. Mostly when I'm on computer, LOL.
We rarely bf in public, unless she is dozing off, but then she is not dwiddling. If she wants breast when we're out and about we try to keep her hands busy.
