Bumping and nursing

How many of you bump and nurse? PP wrote about their child gazing into their eyes while bottle feeding. I feel guilty that I usually bump while DD nurses. She also tends to sleep while she nurses and always has.

Re: Bumping and nursing

  • I bump and nurse pretty much every single time. DD never looks at me when she nurses so I don't feel guilty. I've even tried making eye contact with her and she couldn't care less that I'm there, lol.

  • I assume you mean my comment.  

    i always bump and nurse.  When nursing, DS stares right ahead, but he likes to make eye contact and smile at me when I give him bottles.

  • When I was nursing I bumped, crushed candy, fb, Pinterest; basically anything. I've now mastered doing it while holding a bottle. Though he's getting really good at bottle holding himself so sometimes I can even answer emails!
  • Me too. This is my bump time.

  • The only time I'm on the bump is when I'm nursing and DS1 is occupied. :)  My kids generally close their eyes while nursing.

  • Same here. I stare at my phone while nursing. If she looks at me she stops nursing and smiles. Which is always nice.

  • I bump and nurse. It's kinda hard though because when E is nursing, even though her eyes are closed her arms are still flailing all over the place. Hitting my face, my phone, grabbing and digging her little fingernails into my nipple. Ouch.

    This is what DD does too. And she also grabs my hair and yanks on it, which is just delightful.

  • Both of my kids have always tended to nurse with their eyes closed.  So I've never felt guilty about bumping while nursing.  Although Rhys does do this ADORABLE thing where he'll pull off, look up at me, and then when I look down at him he gives me this HUGE smile and then goes back to nursing.  I melt, every time.

    Yesterday morning I was kind of dozing in and out between DH's alarms, and suddenly he goes, "Yes?  What?  Sweetie WHAT DO YOU WANT?"  I said, "Um....nothing?"  And then he realized that Rhys had been tapping him on the shoulder LOL.

    DS does that, too! His very first smile was mid nursing session. In fact, it's a reason to avoid trying to make eye contact when we nurse (if it's not nap or bed time), because he'll just want to play instead.
