Tonight while I was nursing my daughter she kept smacking herself in the face with her fist. She was swinging her arm around like crazy and alternating between punching her leg and face. Has anyone experienced this?

Yes Kingston is doing this a lot. I'm afraid he is going to hurt himself but he hasn't yet. He sometimes punches me in the stomach and boobs! It hurts!! I think he's just figuring out his hands/arms/fists and trying to d whatever he can with them!

Yep , Scooter mostly punches himself in the tummy and me in my chest.

Thanks *Kiliki* for my amazingly perfect siggy!

Dex does this too! He smacks his leg or my arm or breast while nursing. I thought at first he wasn't getting enough milk, but I think it is more exploring his body and how it works.

Thanks Vicki for my always awesome siggy!

My LO punches my boob. I think it's some sort of frustration with a low milk flow or slow let down. She doesn't do it when things are flowing well.

Lucy likes to swipe at faces and her nails are sharp! She's also a hair puller.

I've got a hair puller too, the first thing she does when I pick her up is embed her fist in my hair and then just ahng on like it's the most normal thing in the world.

Her thing while nursing is kneading and scratching my boob and arm. It hurts!
