My 7 month old baby has just started to pinch at and play with my nipples. It's how she wakes me to nurse and while we are nursing she unlatches and then pinches and kinda plays with my nipple and then goes back to nursing. She also will reach over and start grabbing at the nipple she isn't nursing on and pinches it (well, I guess it's not exactly pinching because she doesn't have the pincer grasp yet, it's more like clawing and raking all her fingers over my nipples) and it hurts really bad especially if her nails are too long. Has this happened to anyone else? Is this normal? I'm not sure what to do. Obviously I want her to satisfy whatever curiosity she may have but it gets frustrating.
