I just don't know what to do about Aidyen and his fit throwing! I am just beyond frustrated now. If I take something away, if I say no, if I don't let him do whatever he wants he will scream bloody murder, kick, throw himself down and flail around!! He does it alot in public also, and its so embarrassing...people will just stare and I know what they are thinking because I think the same thing when I see kids doing the same thing. I mean he is only 1 but there has got to be something I can do. When I am nursing him he will kick me in the face in the other boob, he will slap my face and if I hold his hand so he can't he starts screaming, its getting to be to the point where I dread nursing him. When its time for a nap or bed he doesn't do it as much while nursing, but during the day he will want to nurse for like 20 seconds, pop on and pop off, get down play for a minute then scream and whine to nurse again I am so stressed and tired and don't know what to do...spanking is not an option as we don't spank our kids. Any advice as what to do??

Hi, I know I already replied in our PR but I wanted to address this "but during the day he will want to nurse for like 20 seconds, pop on and pop off, get down play for a minute then scream and whine to nurse again". Have you tried nursing with a blanket over his head? I used to think moms did it for modesty but it's actually to keep the baby from being distracted. Just a thought.

Also, have you thought about a nursing necklace? That way he can play with it instead of smacking you.

I have a cover that I use when I'm out sometimes, it used to bother him but now he's used to it. He does the pop on and off thing at home mostly. When we are out he is so busy that he doesn't nurse while we are out very often. I never thought about a nursing necklace! Maybe that will help...do you know where to get them?

I found some on Amazon.com but I bet there are lots of places that sell them. Maybe Etsy? I recently decided I need to get one so let me know if you find a good one! I get pinched, hit, scratched, and generally assaulted during nursing all the time.

The nursing necklace is a fantastic idea. Make sure you don't get one that's too big though as on mama in our PR said her baby tried to bludgeon her with it
Perhaps he also needs a quieter nursing environment. I know we went through a phase where only side laying in bed was to his liking.
When you take something away from him do you offer him something as a replacement? My personal feeling is that at this young age this is more realistic as they don't understand why you keep taking away their prized possessions that they've worked so hard to sneak around and acquire.
It`s a tough gig..you`re doing great.
