Wugh - why does he do this?

My DS pulls his head back most of the time he is nursing. Envision nipple-stretching pulling back. Click here to enlarge I feel like we have a tug-of-war with me trying to push his head back in closer and him trying to pull away (with my nipple in his mouth). I notice he does it more on the right than the left. Or maybe I notice it more because that side is more sensitive/tender.


Ouch! Click here to enlarge

My older DD went through a stage where she did that - I think it was to get to the letdown more quickly. I would hold her head in so tight to me so she couldn't do it when she tried.Click here to enlarge We fought for about a week, but eventually it stopped.

Good luck.Click here to enlarge

I can't say *why* he's doing it. Click here to enlarge
You could try holding him close to you so he *can't* pull back. Or else give him a stern "no,that hurts Click here to enlarge" when he pulls.

Omd Mary, that link - he does that ALL the time these days. I laughed so hard at the description (nurse a minute, pull off to see the dog, etc).

DS does this all.the.freaking.time. It hurts, too! DD never did anything like this. I think with DS it's gas that makes him throw his head back (and arch his back). All I know is it's miserable.

My Dds did this once in a while. With Dd#1 I thought it was because my letdown was too much, but since I've never had that problem with Dd#2 and she still does it, I don't think that's it.

My newest theory is that it's their desire to pull off and check out the world conflicting with their need to eat. Click here to enlarge

I just try to make the nursing environment as relaxing and distraction-free as possible, and it seems to help.

You can also reposition (as long as you're not mid-letdown Click here to enlarge) if you start to get too uncomfortable.

DD does that! Add to that the head butting too, crimeny, just hang 30 seconds you'll get something!

The pull off look around, try to sit up with nip still in mouth, look around again, streeeeccchhhhH! Arg, my poor nips are thrashed!

The best things in life are unexpected, because there were no expectations.
