Ive never had pain while nursing. But my daughter is kneeding the crap out of my boobs now while nursing! It hurts! I found one of her fingernails lodged in my areola! Not sure how to get her to stop kneeding me!

Maybe try holding her hand or give her something else to hold while nursing?

My girl once in awhile will dig her nails into me and I just have to keep pulling her hand off and holding it or sticking it on my shirt so she can grab that.

That's exactly what it looks like! I even told dh I thought she was doing what cats do and trying to get more milk out?

Sometimes I intentionally let my shirt hang a little low so that when she starts grabbing and pinching, it's not me she's getting, it's the shirt.

Do you have any of those little mittens? Or maybe a onesie with the extra fold at the end of the sleeve that you can use to cover her hands but still allow her to move?

yes, that is exactly what she is doing, it is instinct. I had an issue i discussed at LLL where DD would play with the other side (nipple) and it aggrivated me to no end and they said, it is her stimulating that side for faster let downs! i did put a stop to it, but they are smart!

I'm just waiting on jade to realize the other one is there while she's eating. I tried taking her hand off my boob lately and she starts kicking and wiggling. It's like she's throwing a temper tantrum!
