Nicholas used to hit himself while nursing. He did it for a couple months around.... 10 months?

Any idea why they do this? I mean, she just found her feet, so it might be related to that.

Jo doesn't do it rhythmically...but her legs never stop moving while she eats. Frankly, neither do her arms. She is just a mover kind of kid (it shocks me she doesn't crawl yet, she is constant motion). I just assumed it was that.

But kicking rhythmically I would assume is a calming behavior. Like it soothes her to do it that way. Like rubbing a blanket or twisting hair. Ya know.

Yes, it's definitely rhythmic. This isn't the best video, but you get the idea:

Aw, look at those perfect little feet

Yeah, it looks comforting to me. Just something soothing for her to do while eating. It's pretty cute. Lol.

My son does that while sleeping. Try cosleeping with a baby who rocks the bed for like an hour. LOL.
I wear a chunky necklace that Joseph will grab while he nurses (if I don't he grabs my nose) and he slams it against my collar. LOL
