My poor over stimulated boobs! Ugh! My daughter is such a twiddler! Every time she nurses she tries to twiddle. During the day it's pretty easy to stop her wandering fingers because I can just cover up with my bra/shirt or distract her. But at night in bed (we're still co-sleeping, she's our last) she thinks its a free-for-all.
When I stop her from twiddling in her sleep she growls at me (yup, growls at me in her sleep) then wakes up to claim the side I denied her twiddling fingers from.
So, any ideas on how to stop a night time twiddler? And FYI we do have plans to move her into her own bed in the near-ish future. Just as soon as we can afford it. So, any ideas beyond moving her out of our bed?
Oh, and in case you don't know what twiddling is, it's when a baby is nursing and they reach over to play/tug/twirl/pinch/flick/and otherwise explore the other nipple/breast.
