I offer her my finger to hold. Sometimes she'll take it, sometimes she's determined to pinch.
The tiny little scabs left behind are hawt. /sarcasm
Oh, but if I lift my shirt up instead of bring the neckline down does seem to deter her. Maybe that'll help.
** Raises bruised arm ** YES!!! If the pinching is up front where I can reach it, then I offer LO a part of my shirt to hold or my finger. Lately, he's been pinching the back of my arm while in the cradle hold.
Finally tonight I put a no-scratch mitt on that hand while he nursed on the left side. (Oddly enough, he only does that on the left side.) That helped immensely. I was wondering if I should unlatch him and tell him "Mommy doesn't like that" similar to what you would do if they're biting your nipple. But, I didn't think he'd quite understand that for the pinching, and I hate to mess up a good latch.
