He is 10 months and it has gone on for awhile. Itry to gently tell him no and move his hand but then it ends up a game...Good luck I'm with you on this!
Have you ever heard of a nursing necklace? BEST INVENTION EVER. You can make one, or you can buy one online (I'm sure you could find one in a search). It's just a necklace you wear around your neck that the baby can reach and play with while they nurse. It saves your skin big time!
I went to our local TJ Max and got a really ugly old lady necklace made out of big gawdy wooden beads. She loves it. It keeps her occupied, and she doesn't try to pull the skin off my boobs.
