I’ve always had a problem with Peanut grabbing, pinching, pulling hair, etc. while breastfeeding. People kept recommending a nursing necklace, but I was convinced it wouldn’t work. Eventually I started wearing regular necklaces, but they only kept Peanut interested until midday, then she would go back to pinching.
I eventually resorted to just unlatching her for a few second whenever she would hurt me enough that I would yelp, but of course that ended in her screaming. Luckily, she’s grown out of the behavior for the most part.
I really wish I would have found Little Nursling‘s necklaces while I was in the midst of Peanut’s mean nursing manners (alliteration FTW!). Peanutloves this necklace. The kind love that means she won’t even let me wear it because she must carry it around with her and chew on it (make sure to keep an eye on a baby playing with a necklace because they can be a choking hazard).
When she does let me wear it, she’s playing with it the entire time she nurses. It’s great! I haven’t had my hair pulled once since I started wearing it!
And this necklace is entirely natural!
