    Screwy he tries to latch on and eat everything!!

    Advertisements
    He is always trying to latch on to me, every time I have him! My cheek my wrist my arm my neck, whatever he can get himself attached to!!!! I try to nurse him, but he sucks for a second then just sits there with his mouth on my boob. He isnt hungry, he does this all the time, after Ive fed him, an hour after, before, whenever.

    He just wants to eat me!!!! He doesnt do it to anyone else.

    He tries to eat my clothes, he puts my shirts in his mouth and sucks on them. Hell be rooting all over me 10 minutes after Ive fed him, then, Ill give him to his daddy, and he stops rooting. Its not like I havent tried to nurse him when he does this, he doesnt eat when I try.

    Anyone else have a baby that does this? I cant even hold him without getting eaten alive!!! Anyone know maybe whyyyy he does this?

    I think he just does use me as a pacifier. That or hes out to get me.

    DH says its like when you arent really hungry but theres a bag of chips in front of you. You still need to have some

    I only use a pacifier when he wont stop crying and we are in the car and there is no way for me to get to him. I probably should when he does this, because he seems to only be sucking for comfort.

    Yeah I was so anti-pacifier but Kaia was the same way, she'd eat and eat and then just suck non stop for comfort, so I brought out the pacifier and it helps a lot. & he's totally a little super cutie !!

    Wesson does that. He bounces his face all over my arm. When he has failed, he shoves his fist in his mouth and noms on his fingers.
