I know that this is my fault and should have put an end to it when it started before a year old, but it was how she put herself to sleep. It worked and I need sleep also.
But now I am at my wits end.
My daughter likes to pinch me on my arm. It is not hard nor does it hurt unless her nails aren't trimmed. It is always in the same spot on either arm.
She does it in the bend - it has to be the bend. Among this issue she also never learned to put herself to sleep and she uses the arm pinch thing to comfort herself and help put herself to sleep. Both for her naps & bedtime.
She will also do it if she gets stressed out, tired etc...
I could deal with it before my twins came, but now I can't. If I am nursing the boys (who i do at the same time) she is on me pinching my arm until I am done. It is hard enough to have 2 babies on you at the same time - now I have 3. With summer on us it just makes me all hot and cranky.
If I am on the floor, playing, feeding or changing the boys she is next to me trying to pinch my arm.
I try to be patient because I know she is going through a big adjustment to. But the boys are almost 6 months old now. It was never this bad before the boys came.
I tell her no - and she just moves over to the other arm. I tell her no again she moves again to the other arm. I try to be calm and quiet when I feed the boys so they get a good feeding.
I just can't take it anymore, when I complain to my husband he is like no big deal, she will grow out of it. I think that is easy for him to say because she only does it to ME.
Any suggestions, because it is really driving me nuts.
